Islamic Banking and Finance

Al hamdu lillaah – on 11th December the Islamic Online University’s media department consisting of Ibrahim Cruz (Philippines) and my son, Usaamah, finished recording the remaining lectures of one of our 5 elective courses in Islamic Economics with Dr Farah Abdul-Fattah from the Sudan, who is an Islamic Banking consultant in the UAE. In the coming weeks we will be recording a course in “Accounting from an Islamic perspective” with Dr Ibrahim, an Islamic Economics professor also from the UAE. The introduction to Islamic Economics given by Prof Altijani a couple of years back was really inspiring for the students of the Islamic Studies Academy, which led us to expand our offerings in economics to become a minor in Islamic Banking and Finance for the BAIS degree. We are still trying to find time to record a short version of that course for our diploma students.
