A unique subject-wise collection of 'Fatwas' (legal opinions), relating to the operations of Islamic banks.
The Compendium is based on Fatwas issued by the religious boards of Islamic banks.
It took two years to collect, classify and translate the Fatwas from Arabic to English. The Arabic and English texts appear in the Compendium side by side.
The translation, classification and presentation of the material is by Yusuf Talal Delorenzo, an outstanding Islamic scholar with mastery of both the English and Arabic languages.
The Compendium is the first collection of legal rulings on the operations of Islamic banks that have been put together and will become a unique form of reference for Islamic banks, lawyers, accountants, researchers, academic and business organisations on this topic.
