SHARIAH BASIS OF AL BARAKA ASAAN ACCOUNT

Al Baraka Asaan Account can be opened as Current or Savings account. Current account is based on the Islamic principle of Qarz, whereby the customer is the lender and the bank is the borrower. The funds may be used by the Bank at its discretion, and are payable, on demand, with neither any addition nor penalty.
On the other hand, saving account is based on the Islamic concept of Mudarabah, a form of partnership, in which depositors act as Rab-al-Maal (Capital Provider) whereas bank acts as Mudarib (Expertise Provider). Bank invests these funds in a pool from which financings are given to various sectors such as Corporate, SME, Consumer, etc. on the Islamic principles of sale, partnership and lease. The profit arising from such financings is shared between depositors and bank as per the agreed ratio.
