"A
must for Islamic investors as it addresses permissibility of stock

Targeting the five to seven million Muslims living in the United States, but also being marketed in other countries with large Islamic populations, the guide details how Islamic principles may impact a Muslim’s investment decisions and outlines current scholarly thinking on the acceptability of certain practices.

Globally Muslims hold an estimated $150 billion in investable assets, which are projected to grow at a rate of 15 to 20 percent annually. A large portion of those assets currently are not invested due to the complexities of navigating modern financial markets while adhering to Islamic teachings about financial matters. Muslims in the US comprise half of the worldwide Muslim investing population.

"Investing is one way in which Muslims can be good stewards of their money, as promoted by the teachings of Islam," stated Shaykh Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo, an independent Shariah scholar. "This guide helps Muslims understand how they can put their money to work while standing firm in their Islamic beliefs."
