Abstract

Over the past few decades, the provision and use of Islamic Financial products and services has grown dramatically around the world. However, while there is now a wider understanding of many of the objectives for these products and services from the perspective of Shariah (Islamic law), less is known about the inherent social objectives of Islamic Finance, many of which it shares with the Social Responsibility movement more broadly.
