  19. 19. Shariah Principle prohibitions:  Riba - Interest  Maisir - Gambling  Gharar - Uncertainty 19 snurazani/2011
  20. 20. 20 snurazani/2011
  21. 21. Prohibition : RIBA    Riba, interest, or usury is strictly prohibited in Islam. The literal meaning of the Arabic word riba is increase, excess, addition or growth The Shariah meaning ‘premium’ that must be paid by the borrower to the lender along with the principal amount as a condition for the loan or for an extension in its maturity.   The Holy Quran has clear instructions regarding business and trading activities as earnings from trade (Bai) is halal but interest (Riba) based activities are Haraam. Banking activities are the part of economic activities and Islam allows Riba-free banking only. 21 snurazani/2011
  22. 22. Prohibition : RIBA  Riba An-Nasiah:    22 "That kind of loan where specified repayment period and an amount in excess of capital is predetermined." Imam Abu Bakr Hassas Razi "Every loan that draws profit is one of the forms of Riba" Sahabi Fazala Bin Obaid "Every loan that draws more than its actual amount" Abu Ishaq az Zajjaj snurazani/2011
  23. 23. Prohibition : RIBA  Riba Al-Fadl:   23 It involves excess received when two alike commodities are exchanged.This is explained further in the hadith: Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (r) reported Allah's Messenger (p) as saying: Gold is to be paid for by gold, silver by silver, wheat by wheat, barley by barley, dates by dates, salt by salt, like by like, payment being made hand to hand. He who made an addition to it, or asked for an addition, in fact dealt in riba. Sahih Muslim snurazani/2011
  24. 24. Prohibition : RIBA    Every excess in return of which no reward or equivalent counter value is paid A predetermined excess or surplus over and above the loan received by the creditor conditionally in relation to specified time period A forced “increased of value” in “the medium of exchange” that is loaned. Quran : “ they say, trade is like riba, but Allah has permitted trade and prohibited riba….” 2:275 24 snurazani/2011
  25. 25. Riba and Inflation  Inflation, defined as a continuous rise in prices, can reduce the value of money. Assume that person X provides a $100 loan to person Y, to be paid back in 12 months time. However, if prices have increased by 10 per cent during that time, the value of that $100 will be worth less to the lender (person X). In such a case, can person X charge an excess or premium to take into account the loss of value of money? The Islamic opinion is against the charging of any premium. Scholars contend that although it is unfortunate that person X has lost some value, this is not the fault of person Y (borrower), hence the borrower should not be burdened with this excess. 25 snurazani/2011
  26. 26. RIBA vs PROFIT 26 snurazani/2011
  27. 27. RATIONALE BEHIND THE PROHIBITION: Element of exploitation in financing consumption 1.  The rich is able to generate more without exerting much effort Inconsistent with Islam on the perspective of debt 2.  Incurring debt and interest is discouraged Negative effects on “credit society” 3.   Easy availability of credit cultivates a materialistic society Banks – controller, Customers- enslaved Elements of injustice in financing productive activities 4.   27 Contract done with unequal counter-value Injustice to debtor- obligated to pay even no profit or loss snurazani/2011
  28. 28. Prohibition : GHARAR • • • Literally: Deceit, fraud, uncertainty, danger, peril, or hazard that might lead to destruction or loss. Technically: Uncertainty and/or ignorance of one/both parties in a contract over the substance or attributes of the object of sales, or doubt over its existence and availability at the time of contract. An unknown fact or condition. An element which must be avoided in Islamic banking dealings as excessive gharar may make the contract null and void. – – – – 28 For example: Sale of birds in the air Sale of fish still in the sea Sale of unborn animal snurazani/2011
  29. 29. Prohibition : GHARAR  Rationale for prohibiton of gharar:   Gharar may lead to injustice, exploitation and enmity among contracting parties. To ensure full consent and satisfaction of both parties in a contract   29 Contract will not valid-without full consent. Contract valid if certainty, full knowledge, full disclosure and transparency. snurazani/2011
  30. 30. Prohibition : MAISIR   Definition: Easily obtaining something without effort, acquisition and wealth by chance. Applies to all activities where a person wins or losses by mere chance; gambling. 30 snurazani/2011
  31. 31. Prohibition : MAISIR  The main idea behind the prohibition of gambling (maisir) in Islam is that money should be earned by way of work and effort example knowledge and not by mere pure chance.  31 Playing a lottery is one form of gambling. snurazani/2011
  32. 32. Prohibition : MAISIR  Gambling include any activity where a person pays something of value for the chance to win a prize. When someone gambles, it will involve three things, namely:     32 Prize: anything of value: money, physical items, software Consideration: what the person must pay to enter Pure chance: something that is opposite to the pure skill. For example, chess requires pure skill and slot machine require pure chance. It seems apparent that the chance factor is the dividing line between gambling and non-gambling functions with a consideration. For example, risking $10,000 (i.e. the consideration) in a joint-venture (JV) project is not gambling because the outcome of the JV is based on knowledge and market skills. snurazani/2011
