A team of experienced scholars and qualified professionals at hand to provide advice, guidance and solutions on matters related to Islamic finance, both on an inter-personal, corporate and community level.

The standing committee of scholars meet regularly to discuss cases in depth, involving experts as required, ensuring that a robust and well informed view is created to ensure primacy is given to the Shari’ah in the relevant context.

Our vision is to see a world where where Muslims (individuals and communities) see Allah’s law and guidance as their guide to all aspects of their lives.

Allah SWT says:

فَلَا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّىٰ يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُوا۟ فِىٓ أَنفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًۭا مِّمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا۟ تَسْلِيمًۭا

“By your Lord, they will not be true believers until they let you decide between them in all matters of dispute, and find no resistance in their souls to your decisions, accepting them totally” [4:65]
