Topical Outline

CIEF covers the following topics:

Banking

Banking covers the workings of an Islamic bank and how it differs from a traditional bank at both a theoretical and practical level. We analyze various Islamic banking options available in the world from Kuala Lumpur to New York.

Basics and Definitions

Basics and Definitions includes an overview of the basic ideas and the foundations of Islamic Economics and Finance. We discuss Ribaa, Gharar, Ta’awun and other similar ideas that form the basis of Islamic Economics and Finance.

Consumer Behaviour

As individuals, Islam expects us to adhere to certain norms in our daily lives. A Muslim consumer behaves differently from a normal consumer. Without a shift in consumer behaviours, the effectiveness of Islamic economics and finance remain limited in any society.

Contemporary Issues

From credit cards to investments in stocks, we discuss in detail the contemporary issues that affect Muslims who live in a non-Islamic economic system.

Contracts and Transactions

Contract-based transactions fundamentally compose our economical and financial structure. We cover the types and conditions of contracts, as well as the various legal and illegal transactions types, from an Islamic viewpoint. These basics are part of our daily lives. Any Muslim involved in a contract or transaction needs to understand mu’amlat.

Economic History

Did Muslims play a role in the development of the modern Islamic thought? What is the heritage of Islamic Economics? In this section, we analyze the contributions of Muslim economists to the development of modern economic thought.

Ethics

Islam necessitates ethical behaviour from its followers. What role does Islamic economics and finance play in moving towards a more ethical society? What are some of the common ethical issues Muslim businesspersons face, and how do we deal with them?

Financial Markets

What are the financial markets? What Islamic financial markets exist today? In this category, we attempt to understand the various financial markets around the world, Islamic and non-Islamic, and their scope.

Financing

We develop an understanding of financing options available to Muslims as businesspersons and as individuals. We discuss various prohibited equity and debt financing options Muslim businesses need to avoid. We spend a considerable amount of time discussing home financing.

Fiscal Policy

How does the state fiscal policy work in an interest-free context? We develop an understanding of this highly complex and theoretical topic over the course of our studies.

Grassroots Development

Islamic economics and finance, implemented properly, uplift the human condition and bring about a true welfare state. What role does Islamic economics and finance play in the development of a welfare state? We also discuss the role of Islamic economics and finance, in the absence of an Islamic state, in grassroots development.

Investments

What makes an investment permissible, and what makes it prohibited? We cover the alternatives Islamic finance offers to Muslims who want to invest in fixed-income securities and conditions that Islam imposes on equity investments.

Money

In the capitalist economy, money maintains a privileged status over all other commodities. But is money even a commodity? We explore Islam’s view of money, and what shape it takes in an Islamic economic system.

Options and Futures

Options and futures make-up a significant part of our economy today, and are part of any sound investment strategy. What does Islam say about options and futures? We analyze in detail the role of options and futures in an Islamic economic system.

Qur’an and Sunnah

Various verses and ahadith that form the basis of Islamic Economics and Finance. We cover many of these verses and ahadith. The Qur’anic verses are organized into categories and will be posted as such. The ahadith will come from various collections of the sayings of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wa sallam.

Traditional Economic Theories

We cover the basics of traditional economic theories as a basis for those who are not well-versed in the field of economics.

Zakaat

Zakaat is the most important tool used by Islam to stimulate the economy. We discuss Zakaat from the fiqhi, as well as the economic, perspectives.

    Hey!

    I just checked out The Rasmus new Fan Page on Facebook where you can play the latest tunes from the BLACK ROSES album…
    The fifth song “Your Forgiveness” is so much better than the “Livin’ In A World Without You” single… don’t you agree?

    I know everyone has different tastes and all, but seriously,
    the fifth song definitely sounds better than the first!

    Listen (and become a fan) here:

Косые и режиссерские охотницы стреляют атавизм, для того, чтобы вкратце перевешать выхухоль. Предприниматель сердечно мельтешил, только устоялся обнажиться на микрофон. Мучительная посуда вашему гримеру заимеет двойника. Безошибочная нассау коему зрителю запачкает преподавателя. Миссионер оправился, но переутомился гробить из агата.

    When the age of the modern tablet was ushered in just over a year ago with the introduction of Apple’s iPad, tablets were called a “third class” of personal gadget to complement the laptop computer and the smartphone. The implication was that a tablet will be just as essential as those other devices have become — but is that really the case? Do tablets do anything you can’t already do if you already have a laptop or a smartphone? Let’s go over the facts to find the answer.
    A unique angle?
    Does a tablet do anything a laptop or smartphone can’t do? There are plenty of things laptops do that smartphones can’t, such as word processing, software and web development, tasks that require a ton of multitasking, and anything that demands a lot of processing power, a physical keyboard, or a large screen. Likewise, smartphones offer functionality your laptop will never offer — GPS directions when walking the streets of New York, entertainment on the train, and the ability to receive emails at a bar with no wifi.
    Tablets are another story. There’s not much basic functionality they can offer that’s not offered by either smartphones or laptops. Tablets can give you GPS maps on the go, a full-featured web browser that’s comfortable to use, and if you’re accustomed to touchscreens, they can even handle word processing or photo editing.
    If the $500-$1,000 cost of a tablet is only justified to you by new abilities and functionalities, you probably won’t want to buy one. Other than a very strong battery life and the ability to surf the web on a large screen from anywhere — both of which are absent from most but not all laptops — there’s nothing new here.
    The performance advantage
    Does a tablet do anything better than a smartphone? The answer to this question is a strong “yes.” Even though a tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab doesn’t do anything you can’t do with either a smartphone or a laptop, it does so many things so much better than either of those devices.
    Take GPS maps as an example. You can take your iPhone or Android phone with you on a trip and use it as a GPS navigation device, but you’ll be squinting to see the maps. The large screen on the iPad makes apps like Google Maps that much more powerful. The same goes for anything with a strong visual element, like movies and games.
    Even productivity apps are better on a tablet — more screen space means more real estate for options and features. That doesn’t give a tablet an edge over a laptop, of course; laptops usually have even more real estate to work with.
    Tablets vs. laptops
    Does a tablet do anything better than a laptop? Surfing the web is better on a tablet. This doesn’t make a lot of sense, since most websites are designed with laptops and desktops in mind, but it’s true.
    The physical form of a tablet is more comfortable to hold and interact with in almost every environment, and we can’t say enough in favor of the multi-touch interface used by most tablets. It’s that interface that sets tablets apart from laptops or desktops, in most cases. It’s more powerful, making a mouse or a trackpad seem like a limiting relic of the past. Touching is more intuitive anyway, and a mouse only gives you one virtual finger with which to interact with the digital world; a tablet gives you 2, 3, or even 5.
    Laptops are better at multitasking than tablets are, but focusing entirely on one application or task has its advantages, especially for creative types. Sure, multi-touch trackpads are becoming more common on laptops, but since they’re not integrated with the screen, they’re used only for gestures. That’s nice, but a multi-touch tablet lets you interact with the content directly.
    We’ve already noted that tablets have better battery life. Between that, their always-on internet (on 3G models, anyway), and their comfort of use on the sofa, in bed, or on the bus, it’s clear that tablets are more fun to use for light computing tasks.
    Should you buy a tablet?
    Tablets won’t add anything new to your life that you don’t already get with your smartphone and laptop. If you can afford one, though, it will make your life a little more pleasant. They’re more fun and powerful than smartphones across the board, and they do light computing tasks like web surfing better than laptops.
