Sharia finance to be demystified at event in Whitechapel
The facts about Islamic finance are to be revealed at a question time event held in Whitechapel on Monday evening.
As part of the “Sharia Finance Question Time” tour, it is one of a series of debates on the subject up and down the country.
It has been organised by the Islamic Bank of Britain, which claims to have received a surge of applications to take advantage of its services during the summer months. The bank hopes that the sessions will demystify Islamic finance, which it says represents a stable and ethical alternative to western financial institutions.
Speaking ahead of the event, Abul Fozoll, who manages the Islamic Bank of Britain’s branch in Whitechapel Road, said: “Interest in Islamic finance is growing.
“It appeals to both existing customers and members of the local community keen to find out how Sharia compliant financial products work.”
