The Islamic Fund: Religious Take on Socially Responsible Investing ...
is an investment fund that is managed according to the Sharia law. The law is based on Islam's sacred texts. In many ways, the resulting policies often overlap with the goals of socially responsible investing. Socially responsible investing is the term for investment practices that try to earn profit in a socially responsible way without hurting the investors' bottom lines. Like socially responsible investors, Islamic investors seek to minimize risk, contribute to social causes and avoid contributing to industries that they view as damaging to the public good. However, because of unique ... market research, surveys and trends

The zero percent solution - The Boston Globe
LAST MONTH, two economists published a working paper suggesting an unusual way to diversify one's investment portfolio: buy something called sukuk, or bonds that conform to the demands of Islam. The Koran, most Islamic scholars agree, forbids the charging of interest, so traditional bonds are off-limits to devout Muslims. But sukuk generate a steady income from actual, tangible assets, like a rented piece of land. Sukuk are also, it turns out, more stable than traditional sovereign bonds. While the sample size was small, the study by Selim Cakir, of the International Monetary Fund, and Faezeh Raei, a graduate student at the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Iran's Global Terrorist Reach
The United States became painfully aware of the threat posed by global jihadism after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. Until that day, Iranian-backed terrorist networks, such as Hezbollah, were responsible for killing more American citizens than al-Qaeda. In the years since, the balance has been gradually tilting back towards Iran. In the words of former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, al-Qaeda may be the ‘B’ team of international terrorism, but Hezbollah is the ‘A’ team. Indeed, Iran’s Khomeinists began their war on the U.S. and other democracies years before Osama bin ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Is investing on the stockmarket a type of gambling/haram if you ...
Dealings with the stock market are forbidden to all Muslims. It is a form of gambling, in that you are risking your money on the hope that you will show a profit at the end of the day. Let us take the notion that you buy shares within a company that deals completely according to the Shariah. It will undoubtedly offset some of its profits in shares with other companies, which may not be trading according to the Shariah. This in turn will take it outside the Shariah and lawful trading. Let us suppose this company is a telephone company. Now while 60% of its clients may be Halal the other 40% could be Haram in some minor or ...
Google Answers: Sharia regulations governing hedge fund investments
Is a hedge fund that invests in exchange traded commodity futures contracts(copper, zinc, gold, crude oil etc) and goes BOTH long and short sharia compliant? Would an investment into such a fund be allowed under islamic (sharia) law? Based on my research, it is extremely unlikely that a conventional hedge fund of the type you describe would be compliant with Islamic law. The investing in basic materials is fine, but conventional shorting is prohibited. Furthermore, the fund probably collects and/or pays some interest in the course of its activities. However, there are hedge funds in existence that claim to be ...
