Financial engineering is considered one of the hottest topics that attract the attention of researchers in Islamic finance. In this context, Murdi al-Anzi prepared a Ph.D. thesis at Qassim University in order to establish a foundation for the topic according to Islamic law on the basis of some products used in the Islamic financial industry. The book review concludes several results, notably: the awareness of the non-neutrality of means, the rigor in the use of the concept of innovation, and overcoming the elitist view which holds that financial solutions are the prerogative of financial engineers. The book review recommends the preparation of two survey studies: The developments concerning the research on financial engineering in the light of the financial crisis, and the writings about Islamic financial engineering in English and French. تُعدُّ الهندسة الماليّة من الموضوعات الساخنة التي تجلب اهتمام الباحثين في التمويل الإسلامي. في هذا الإطار أعدّ مرضي العنزي أطروحة دكتوراه بجامعة القصيم لتأصيل الموضوع بناء على بعض المنتجات المتداولة في الصناعة المالية الإسلامية. وتخلص المراجعة العلمية إلى نتائج عدّة، من أبرزها: الوعي بعدم حيادية الوسائل، وضبط مصطلح الابتكار، وتجاوز النظرة النخبوية التي ترى أن الحلول المالية هي من اختصاص المهندسين الماليين. وتوصي المراجعة العلمية بضرورة إعداد دراستين مسحيتين: تتناول أولاهما مستجدات البحث العلمي في الهندسة المالية في ضوء الأزمة المالية العالمية، والثانية الكتابات عن الهندسة المالية الإسلامية باللغتين الإنجليزية والفرنسية.
