Development Of Mudarabah Instruments: Understanding Their Profitability, Securitization And Negotiability Aspects


  • Muhammad Anwar



This paper attempts to examine the securitization, negotiability and profitability aspects of three types of muèOErabah instruments; namely, asset-enfaced muèOErabah instruments, currency-enfaced muèOErabah instruments representing monetary contributions and currency-enfaced muèOErabah instruments representing real assets. This paper begins with a distinction between ribOE (usury) and profit and concludes that an exchange of currencyenfaced muèOErabah instruments in varying amounts entails ribOE while an exchange of asset-enfaced muèOErabah instruments will generate legitimate profits. The current practice is to issue currency-enfaced muèOErabah instruments but treat them as asset-enfaced muèOErabah instruments. This position is analyzed and policy implications are drawn for future development of muèOErabah instruments.
