  • Eid Sharidah Musad Alanazi
  • Fayaz Ahmad Lone


Islamic Banking in Saudi Arabia is emerging because of the social implications prevailing in this banking system. Saudi Arabia has both conventional and Islamic banks, but many banks have shifted from conventional to Islamic in the last few years. The present study was conducted to analyze the perception of Saudi society towards Islamic banking as far as its ¡®shariah¡¯ rules are concerned. The study aims at measuring to what extent society is satisfied with this banking system and what is their perception towards working of this banking? Based on the findings, some important suggestions have been mentioned at the end.
