Islamic Banking:


Islamic banking has been defined as banking in consonance with the philosophy
and value system of Islam and governed, in addition to the conventional good
governance and risk management rules, by the principles laid down by Islamic
Shariah. Interest free banking is a narrow concept denoting a number of banking
instruments or operations, which avoid interest.        Islamic banking, the more
general term is expected not only to avoid interest-based transactions, prohibited
in the Islamic Shariah, but also to avoid unethical practices and participate
actively in achieving the goals and objectives of an Islamic economy.
The Islamic Banking system employs the concept of participation in the
enterprise, utilizing the funds at risk on a profit-and- loss-sharing basis. This by
no means implies that investments with financial institutions are necessarily
speculative. This can be excluded by careful investment policy, diversification of
risk and prudent management by Islamic financial institutions.

Islamic Shariah prohibits „interest‟ but it does not prohibit all gains on capital. It
is only the increase stipulated or sought over the principal of a loan or debt that is
prohibited. Islamic principles simply require that performance of capital should
also be considered while rewarding the capital. The prohibition of a risk free
return and permission of trading, as enshrined in the Verse 2:275 of the Holy
Quran, makes the financial activities in an Islamic set-up real asset-backed with
ability to cause „value addition‟.

Islamic banking system is based on risk-sharing, owning and handling of physical
goods, involvement in the process of trading, leasing and construction contracts
using various Islamic modes of business and finance. As such, Islamic banks deal
with asset management for the purpose of income generation. They will have to
prudently handle the unique risks involved in management of assets by adherence
to the best practices of corporate governance. Once the banks have stable stream
of Halal income, depositors will also receive stable and Halal income.

                                                                      073605092
The forms of businesses allowed by Islam at the time the Holy Quran was
revealed included joint ventures based on sharing of risks & profits and provision
of services through trading, both cash and credit, and leasing activities. In the
Verse II:275, Allah the Almighty did not deny the apparent similarity between
trade profit in credit sale and Riba in loaning, but resolutely informed that Allah
has permitted trade and prohibited Riba.

Profit has been recognized as „reward‟ for (use of) capital and Islam permits
gainful deployment of surplus resources for enhancement of their value. However,
along with the entitlement of profit, the liability of risk of loss on capital rests
with the capital itself; no other factor can be made to bear the burden of the risk of
loss. Therefore, financial transactions, in order to be permissible, should be
associated with goods, services or benefits. While at micro level this feature of
Islamic finance leads to generation of real economic activity and stable growth, at
macro level it can be helpful in creating better discipline in conduct of fiscal and
monetary policies.

Besides trading, Islam allows leasing of assets and getting rentals against the
usufruct taken by the lessee. All such things/assets corpuses of which are not
consumed with their use can be leased out against fixed rentals. The ownership in
leased assets remains with the lesser that assumes risks and gets rewards of his
ownership.

Major Modes of Islamic Banking and Finance:

MURABAHA

Literally it means a sale on mutually agreed profit. Technically, it is a contract of
sale in which the seller declares his cost and profit. The parties negotiate on the
margin or the rate of profit on the cost. Islamic banks have adopted this as a
mode of financing. As a financing technique, it involves a request by the client to
the bank to purchase certain goods for him. The bank does that for a definite
profit over the cost, which is stipulated in advance.

IJARAH
Ijarah is a contract of a known and proposed usufruct against a specified and
lawful return or consideration for the service or return for the benefit proposed to
be taken, or for the effort or work proposed to be expended. In other words,
Ijarah or leasing is the transfer of usufruct for a consideration which is rent in case
of hiring of assets or things and wage in case of hiring of persons.

ISTISNAA

It is a contractual agreement for manufacturing goods and commodities, allowing
cash payment in advance and future delivery or a future payment and future
delivery.   Istisna can be used for providing the facility of financing the
manufacture or construction of houses, plants, projects and building of bridges,
roads and highways.

MUSHARKAH

Musharkah means a relationship established under a contract by the mutual
consent of the parties for sharing of profits and losses in the joint business. It is
an agreement under which the Islamic bank provides funds, which are mixed with
the funds of the business enterprise and others. All providers of capital are
entitled to participate in management, but not necessarily required to do so. The
profit is distributed among the partners in pre-agreed ratios, while the loss is
borne by each partner strictly in proportion to respective capital contributions.

Remittance and Clearing
After the account opening section I worked in the Remittance and Clearing
section. I saw the representations of Cheques which come for clearing. Sir
Shahzad helped me in this section and told me the basic steps of clearing and
remittance. During the working of this department I filled vouchers of many
account holders in this bank.

There are two types of Clearing.



                                         Clearing




          OBC                             Inward                           Outward



Intercity
In intercity section the Cheques are drawn to other bank that is out of cities by
ABL-IBB       In intercity NIFT directly present Cheques in the concern bank if
clearing then the bank clearance stamp on this Cheques and State Bank transfer
amount to the other bank‟s account. NIFT charges on this RS. 150. Bank gets
commission on it RS.250 per Cheques.

Local
Local clearing is free means that bank does not charge by its clients for clearing
and pay for it by self. It can be said that it is free for customers.




                                           18                           M. Waqas Yousaf

Inward
Inward Clearing means the Cheques drawn from ABL-IBB another banks. Where
as clearing branch to branch is done through online.
Outward
In outward clearing I saw how the Cheques drawn on other banks with in city
ABL-IBB.
OBC (Outward Bank Collection)
The OBC Cheques drawn by another banks outside city. ABL-IBB does not take
NIFT services but send Cheques to other branch. And that branch does clearing
locally.
IBC (inward Bank Collection)
IBC Cheques drawn on ABL-IBB from other city. Branch of that city confirm
about that Cheques through fax which drawn on ABL-IBB Gujranwala. After
clearing ABL-IBB Gujranwala transfer funds in the Nostro Account.
Services Charges
NIFT perform all clearing services Intercity and local both. It charges for return
report and clearance report RS.150.
          Return report means if Cheques is not clear by other bank NIFT returns
           this to the particular bank.
          Clearance Report means if Cheques clear by other banks NIFT report to

Murabaha:
   “The Murabaha transaction was prevalent in the day of
   Prophet               .”
       Islamic banks therefore use a sale-based transaction (Murabaha) instead of
        loan-based transactions for financing purchase of assets by their clients.
       Over 70% of all advances made by Islamic banks comprises of Murabaha
        transactions.
       Murabaha is a particular kind of sale
       Islam prohibits charging interest on money, but permits charging profit on
        sale of goods
       Where the transaction is done on a “cost plus profit” basis i.e. the seller
        discloses the cost to the buyer and adds a certain profit to it to arrive at the
        final selling price
       The distinguishing feature of Murabaha from ordinary sale is: the seller
        discloses the cost to the buyer and a known profit is added.
       Prohibition of: Major Uncertainty (Gharar) and Sale of debt
       Subject matter of sales must conform to Shariah rules:        Be in existence,
        Possession by seller either physically or constructive.
Valid Sale:
   A valid sale contract exhibits two features:
       Knowledge; i.e. parties‟ full knowledge of the object of sale.
       Existence; a concrete sale object.
       Absence of these features introduces Gharar in the transaction
   Murabaha:
   The profit may be added: On a lump sum basis & as a percentage of cost
Payment of Murabaha price may be
   1) At spot
   2) In installments
   3) In lump sum after a certain time



                                           24                      M. Waqas Yousaf
                                                                       073605092
    Hence, Murabaha does not necessarily imply the concept of deferred
    payment.
Basic rules for Murabaha financing:
1. Asset to be sold must exist.
2. Sale price should be determined.
3. Sale must be unconditional.
4. Assets to be sold: should not be used for un-Islamic purpose, should be in
ownership of the seller at the time of sale, and should be in physical or
constructive possession of the seller.
    Quranic view on Gambling & Risk
O




believers! Intoxicants and gambling and Al Ansab (Animals sacrificed for idols)
and Al Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Satan's
handiwork. So avoid them in order that you may be successful. Satan wants only
to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling and
hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So, will you not
then abstain? (Al Maidah 90 – 91)


Ahadith on Gambling & Risk
       “Whoever buys foodstuff let him not sell it until he has possession of
        them”. (Bukhari)
       “Do not buy fish in the sea, for it is Gharar”. (Bukhari)
       “He who purchases food shall not sell it until he weighs it”. (Muslim)

     “The Prophet forbade the sale of grapes until they become black and the
      sale of grain until it is strong.” (Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood,

      Agency Agreement.
      Draw down notice.
      Description of assets.
      Summary Payment Schedule.
      Declaration.
Master Murabaha:
      It‟s an agreement between the client and the Bank whereby the client
       agrees to purchase goods from the Bank from time to time as per the terms
       and conditions of this agreement.
      This is an over all facility agreement under which various Sub-Murabaha
       may be executed from time to time.
      Hence it needs to be signed once at the time the facility is sanctioned.
Agency Agreement:
      The client is appointed by the Bank as its agent to purchase goods. This
       agreement needs to be signed once between the client and the bank.
    The disbursement of funds is done under this agreement.
Declaration:

      Declaration is to be signed by the customer immediately after it has
       purchased the goods.
      This document establishes the actual sale transaction, i.e. transfer of
       ownership of goods from the Bank to the customer.
      At this stage the specific details of the assets must be known i.e. quantity,
       quality etc.
      Proper timing of declaration is extremely important.

Askari Islamic bank is new in Islamic banking systems. So it needs a lot of
improvement in its sectors. Some of the recommendations & suggestion to the
bank would be as follows:



                                  60                    M. Waqas Yousaf
                                                            073605092
 There is immediate need, to reconstruct the personnel policies. Selection
    should be through newspaper advertisements.              In this way more
    intelligent, efficient and qualified staff can be formulated.


   It is strongly recommended that ABL-IBB should go for computerization
    rather than manual work, which is very slow and time, consuming process.
    In this age ABL-IBB even does not have a partially computerized system
    where as other new competitor banks are now going towards on-line
    banking services.

   Govt. should take keen interest to promote Islamic Banking.

   Along with the officers, the training must also be given to the clerical
    staff.

   Present training program for its officers is need to be improved, as this
    program instead of improving the efficiency of officers is merely a burden
    for the bank in the form of heavy T.A. , D.A. and cost.

   Working conditions must be improved for the employees. Bank will
    definitely get more benefits after some expenditure on the working
    conditions as it improves efficiency and productivity of the employees.

   ABL-IBB should flourish certain marketing plans to attract the customers
    by giving them certain incentives and beneficial schemes to the customers
    as other competitor banks are doing so.

   There is also a need of proper recruitment and selection program. New
    young talent should be introduced to inject the new ideas.

   Deterioration in efficiency is mostly due to promotion without merit. So
    promotions must be awarded on merit and also when due.




                                      61                       M. Waqas Yousaf
                                                                   073605092
   Special attention should be given to the behavior of the employees
    towards the customers, as customer is the most important person for any
    bank.

To motivate the employees of the bank, regular bonuses and incentives should
be given to them.
   There must be a friendly environment among all the employees as it
    enhances the trust and sincerity.

   At the moment the bank is not providing ATM facility to its customers.
    Bank should start giving this facility in order to highlight the value added
    features offered along with the basic product. As the bank has the good
    image, they can use that image as a benefit in this regard. To stay in the
    competition the bank should introduce its ATM cards soon.

   The number of Fax machines and photocopying machine in the bank are
    also less than they are needed. For photocopying one has to go downstairs.
    So there should be more machines and also their placement should be at
    the right place.

During my internship in Askari Islamic Bank G.T. Road Gujarnwala,

for one and half month I have worked as a member of the organization

in different departments i.e. account , foreign trade , account opening

department, CAD department etc . The behavior of the staff with

clients and me was perfect. They want to capture the market by

providing good services. They also try to provide more and more

facilities like Business Loan, Car Ijarah facility to their valued clients.

I have viewed the last six month performance of the bank. The bank‟s

profit ratio is going higher day by day. It is all due to better

management policies and good implementation and co-operation of

the staff members. This branch is not only maximizing its profit every

month but also controlling its expense ratio and it is a good sign for a

branch‟s good reputation. . After drawing my conclusion I am feeling

pleasure to announce that:-

Banks Ability as Going Concern
    There is no doubt about the bank‟s ability to continue as a going

    concern. This branch is not only competing with other banks but also

    making its reputation in the market as early up going concern. This is

    all due to ability and handwork of staff and branch manager.

    Employees Behavior:
    The employees are hard worker and keen to capture the clients on the

    basis of their fair dealing. The do not waste any single opportunity to

    get a good deposit from their valued clients. The staff also tries to

    provide full respect to every kind of customer, whether he is a young

    person or he is an elder person. This helps them to create not only

    good relations but also increase the overall deposits of the branch.

    Management towards the innovation:
    The bank‟s management is fully aware of the today‟s innovation in the

    banking industry and taking necessary measures to keep pace with the

    competitors in the market. The management always tries to offer new

    schemes for their valued clients.
