How Sharia-compliant is Islamic banking?

The Islamic finance industry has often battled with the question: How Islamic is Islamic banking?


How a Prohibition on Interest (Riba) Would Affect Trade Cycles and Entrepreneurship

Islam is extremely strict in its prohibition of interest (Riba.) Riba is an unfair, unearned, and undeserved income which is usually used to denote business transactions like money lending or credit. Muslims argue that Riba is at the heart of most of the ills of the modern economic system. 

Islamic economics proposes that instead of interest, a more fair approach would involve profit sharing; that is, in which both parties gain a proportional income depending on the investment or business in question.
