Please help in this regards
In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Brother in Islam,
May Allah reward you for your search in acquiring Halal financing.
In principal, the shariah compliancy of a finance scheme is dependent on three factors.
a) The concept
b) The contract
c) The implementation
1) The concept itself must be accepted in Shariah.
2) The contract must reflect the actual reality of the concept.
3) The implementation of the product claimed as Shariah Compliant according to theterms and conditions reflected in the contract. It is one thing to have a ShariahCompliant contract and it is another to enact the product according to the contract. Ifthe product is not enacted according to the terms and conditions of the contract, the transaction cannot be claimed as Shariah Compliant.
While we may elaborate on the different modes of financing acceptable in shariah, the mere description will not be sufficient to determine the shariah compliancy of a mode of financing. If you require further information regarding a certain company, you may forward the details of that company along with the relevant contracts. We will advise accordingly.
