business under some guidelines and rules & regulations. Banks and other

the financial and banking sector. Islamic banking in the UAE has been proven to
be one of the strongest contenders to conventional banking. In Islamic banking,
both bank and customers identify and mutually agree on developing the right
technique and appropriate solutions which are beneficial to customer and bank.

incorporated into civil law and many commercial laws in UAE are compatible with
Sharia’s laws. Most importantly, according to law the courts in UAE are also
permitted to give decisions based on Sharia’s principles especially in the
absence of clear legislation in the law. However, there is a challenge to UAE’s
government and financial sectors in structuring and developing the strong
Islamic banking and finance system due to the occasional mismatch and a gap
between Islamic and conventional banking system.
