  1. 1. Al- Faysal Bank Limited INTRODUCTION TO THE MAJOR ISLAMIC MODES OF FINANCING 1. MORABAHA This is a mode of sale and purchase of commodities. The agreement is made between the Bank and a Customer, whereby Bank purchases a commodity and sells the same to Customer on a deferred payment basis. The essential features of the Morabaha are: 1. Existence of a tangible commodity/asset of which physical possession can be taken before use or consumption. 2. Such commodity or asset has to be acquired from third party (commodity/asset already in the possession of the Customer, cannot form basis of the agreement). 3. Bank sells the commodity/asset to the Customer. LOCAL PURCHASE MORABAHA (LPO) Bank and the client sign a Morabaha Agreement. Client submits a request for purchase of commodity/asset by specifying 1 Business Institution
  2. 2. Al- Faysal Bank Limited quality, quantity and price. Bank appoints an agent under an Agency Agreement (who could be the client) to purchase the asset/ commodity on behalf of the bank. The Agent purchases the commodity under a Purchase Order from third party after obtaining disbursement from the bank through Receipt and submits a Declaration to this effect. Bank sells the commodity/asset to the Client on a cost plus profit basis and the parties agree on a Purchase Price and Due date. MORABAHA IMPORTS (PAD) Bank and Client sign a Morabaha Agreement. In terms of the Morabaha Agreement, the Bank appoints the Client as its Agent through an Agency Agreement to import commodities from time to time. Client submits an application to establish letter of credit and the Bank opens it. Upon negotiation, the Bank creates an advance in the name of the Client, value payment of funds to the beneficiary. Upon receipt of documents and arrival of goods, the Bank and the Client enter into a Morabaha through a declaration submitted by the client. Such Morabaha can be spotted, where client pays immediately to retire documents or on a deferred payment basis, if the client wishes to pay later. In case of deferred payment, the Client signs a promissory note for the purchase price agreed and the Bank releases the documents. 2 Business Institution
  3. 3. Al- Faysal Bank Limited 2. IJARAH (LEASING): Clients use Ijarah financing mainly for financing purchase of plant and machinery. If assets subject to lease are to be freshly acquired, Bank may appoint an agent (could be the client) to do so on its behalf. If Client has already acquired the equipment, Bank will purchase it from Client and lease it back. The process of Ijarah takes place as follows:  Bank and Client sign a Lease Finance Agreement whereby Client agrees to take on lease from the Bank for specified assets for an agreed tenor.  Bank appoints an Agent for acquisition of assets, if not already in possession of Client.  Bank intimates Client of acquisition of assets and delivers to place specified by Client.  Term of lease starts from date Client takes possession of assets, whether constructive or physical.  Client pays a monthly, or quarterly rental to the Bank for the use of the assets and by virtue of the agreement, becomes owner of asset only after paying a nominal lease end value. 3 Business Institution

MUSHARAKAH Under Islamic jurisprudence, Musharakah means a joint enterprise formed for conducting some business in which all partners contribute financially and share the profit as per pre agreed upon ratios, while the loss is shared according to the ratios of financial contribution of each partner. The Musharakah is an ideal alternate to replace interest based lending with far reaching effects on both production and distribution of capital. Profit sharing ratios in a Musharakah depend entirely on the estimated profit the business is able to generate. The Musharakah is a relationship established, by the parties, by mutual contract and therefore all necessary ingredients of a valid contract must be present. The risk of loss inherent in this mode of financing ensures that the Bank fully satisfies itself as to the profitability and feasibility of the business venture as well as to the integrity of its Musharakah partners. 4. MODARABA This is a kind of partnership where one partner gives money to another for investing it in a commercial enterprise. The investment comes from the first partner who is called "Rabb-ul- 4 Business Institution
  5. 5. Al- Faysal Bank Limited maal" while the management and work is an exclusive responsibility of the other, who is called "Modarib" and the profits generated are shared in a predetermined ratio. There are two types of Modaraba namely: • Al Modaraba Al Moqayyadah: Rabb-ul-maal may specify a particular business or a particular place for the Modarib, in each case he shall invest the money in that particular business or place. This is called Al Modaraba Al Moqayyadah (restricted Modaraba). • Al Modaraba Al Mutlaqah: If Rabb-ul-maal gives full freedom to Modarib to undertake whatever business he deems fit, this is called Al Modaraba Al Mutlaqah (unrestricted Modaraba). However, Modarib cannot, without the consent of Rabb-ul-maal, lend money to anyone. Modarib is authorized to do anything which is normally done in the course of business. If they want to have an extraordinary work which is beyond the normal routine of the traders, it cannot be done without express permission from the Rabb-ul-maal. Modarib is also not authorized to  keep another Modarib or a partner  Mix his own investment in that particular Modaraba without the consent of Rabb-ul-maal. 5 Business Institution

Faysal Bank Limited invests its funds in only Islamic modes of finance e.g. Musharaka business, Modaraba business, Ijara, etc. Due to this factor, many people invest their money in the Faysal Bank Limited and bank’s deposits are increasing year by year. 36 Business Institution
  37. 37. Al- Faysal Bank Limited SWOT ANALYSIS After viewing Faysal Bank Limited the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats which we have identified are as follows. STRENGTHS Computerization The main strength of Faysal Bank Limited is that all of its branches are fully computerized and they have latest software’s available to keep the records of their customer’s accounts and other important information. The advantages of computerization are:  That it reduces manual work.  It provides good customer services. Staff The second strength of Faysal Bank Limited is that it has staff which is well qualified and capable of performing the task which is assigned to them. 37 Business Institution
  38. 38. Al- Faysal Bank Limited Fast Service The Faysal Bank Limited is one of the leading banks in the private sector. The act which makes them capable to achieve this position is the quality and speed of services which they provide to their customers. Employee Service The Faysal Bank Limited is the one of few banks in the private sector which provide the employees written policy which helps them to know the opportunities present ahead. The rules and regulations of the banks are briefly described in the policy manual and it is a sort of a guidance for employees to know what is right and what is wrong. WEAKNESSES Small Network The Weakness Of Faysal Bank Limited is that it has small network of branches all over Pakistan. It has only 12 branches all over the country and if we compare this proportion with any Govt. bank than this proportion is very small. 38 Business Institution
  39. 39. Al- Faysal Bank Limited Disbelief in Advertising The other weakness of Faysal Bank Limited is its disbelief in advertising. We can hardly find any advertisement of the bank in print media or in electronic media. So management should consider this and should realize the importance of advertising. Only then they would be able to attract more customers and the market. OPPORTUNITIES Govt. Policies The economic and industrial reforms brought into country by the present Military Govt. seems promising. This has not only increased the confidence of people within the country but also people outside the country are now more interested to have funds invested in Pakistan. So now this is the time to avail this opportunity and attract those investors to come in Pakistan and invest funds. This is because when someone comes in the country and deposit funds in the banks then the balances of the deposit in the bank increases and the banks invest those funds to earn returns and in that case the bank flourishes. 39 Business Institution
  40. 40. Al- Faysal Bank Limited THREATS Greater Competition The major threat for Faysal Bank Limited is the intensified competition among the private banks in the country. There are many private banks now a days operating in the country and every bank is trying to improve its functioning and try to give more facilities to customers because in return they will get more deposits from the clients. So if Faysal Bank Limited want to have an edge from its competitors than it has to improve its functioning and try to give more facilities and services to its customers. Impact of Privatization Now Days the Govt. is in an attempt to privatize the national banks so that the banks improve their functioning and customers have better service options. Like recently, MCB and Allied Bank have been privatized. So this has increased the competition among the private banks. If Faysal Bank Limited wants to compete with other banks and wants to increase its shares in the market then they have to improve their services and also have to spend on advertisement. 40 Business Institution
  41. 41. Al- Faysal Bank Limited FUTURE PLANS Going forward, the Bank is poised for growth of its financing base through selective Morabaha (Financing Resale of Goods), Musharakah (Mutual Paticipation Financing), Modarabah (Certificate of Investment) and Ijarah (Leasing) transactions. FBL's equity base is extremely strong and it plans to aggressively expand its business by introducing Islamic deposit and investment products as well as focusing towards developing business in the consumer finance segment. They planned to open three more branches for which they have gained approval from the state bank and they hope to have all the three branches operating by the end of 2002.

  42. 42. Al- Faysal Bank Limited OBSERVATIONS AND CONCLUSION We observed Faysal Bank Limited as a financially sound bank. Its profits are increasing year by year, its staff is very good and sincere with the bank. But due to the present economic slump, the business of the bank is reduced. Foreign currency business of the bank is almost stopped. Now the bank is concentrating on its Rupee Business and in this regard bank has recently introduced a new scheme called Faysal Izafa. The bank is also opening its branches in near future in Sialkot. This will help the customer of Sialkot to get better services from such a good bank in the private sector. We found the rules and regulation of the bank very good and strict e.g. a limited staff is allowed to enter cash department and Security system is very good and modern. 42 Business Institution
