STOCKBROKING IN ISLAM: A REVIEW OF LITERATURES AND ITS FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IN MALAYSIA

The study aims at discussing the concept and practice of Islamic Stockbroking, and examining the opportunities of Islamic Stockbroking in Malaysia.The study adopts library research to discuss the concept of Islamic stockbroking. It also employs a semi-structured interview with industry players to prognosticate the future development of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia. The study reveals that stockbroking is not a new concept in Islam. Classical jurists have discussed thoroughly the concept of samsarah (brokerage) from an Islamic perspective. The current practice of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia employs two tiers of wakalah contract. Furthermore, the study concludes that the future of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia is very promising, triggered by drivers on both the supply side and the demand side. The large Muslim population, wealth and economic growth are among the key factors for the development of Islamic stockbroking from the demand side. On the other hand, the Shari‟ah compliance of 89% of Malaysian stocks, Malaysia‟s position as an Islamic finance hub, and the natural progression of Islamic finance are all factors underpinning the future of Islamic stockbroking from the supply side. This study will add new literature in contemporary Islamic finance as not much study has been conducted on the subject matter

Survey on Sharīʿah non-compliant events in Islamic banks in the practice of tawarruq financing in Malaysia

Purpose – Tawarruq (Islamic commodity financing) has evolved as the most ubiquitous concept in Malaysia’s Islamic banking industry. Nevertheless, the extensive use of tawarruq has invoked a number of Sharīʿah (Islamic law) concerns in its practice. This study aims to investigate the Sharīʿah non-compliant (SNC) phenomena in the practice of tawarruq financing in Malaysia. Design/methodology/approach – This study adopts qualitative research methodology, combining both descriptive and content analysis. A self-administered questionnaire was distributed to 16 Malaysian Islamic commercial banks to unveil the Sharīʿah non-compliance issues in the application of tawarruq in Islamic banks (IBs) in Malaysia. Findings – This study found that some practices of tawarruq in Malaysia might not comply with Shari’ah, mainly because of the improper sequencing of contracts. The study also discovered that IBs adopt different approaches in dealing with SNC events and the income derived therefrom. Finally, the study noted the influence of board of director/management on certain Sharīʿah decisions particularly about the treatment of non-halal income. Research limitations/implications – The findings of the study serve as a reference to industry players and regulators in formulating Shari’ah non-compliance risk management framework for tawarruq practices. Originality/value – The survey on SNC issues in tawarruq practice constitutes the first of its kind in the existing literature.

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ISLAMIC STOCKBROKING IN MALAYSIA

Purpose  The chapter aims to examine the challenges and the opportunities for the development of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia. Methodology  The chapter adopts library research to discuss the concept of Islamic stockbroking. It also employs a semi-structured interview with industry players to prognosticate the future development of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia. Research Findings  The study concludes that the future of Islamic stockbroking in Malaysia is very promising, triggered by drivers on both the supply side and the demand side. The large Muslim population, wealth and economic growth are among the key factors for the development of Islamic stockbroking from the demand side. On the other hand, the Shari’ah compliance of 89% of Malaysian stocks, Malaysia’s position as an Islamic finance hub and the natural progression of Islamic finance are all factors underpinning the future of Islamic stockbroking from the supply side.

How Shari`ah-compliant is Islamic Banking?

This research is a critical analysis of the practice of certain Islamic banks (IBs) and institutions offering Shari`ah-complaint financial services (ISFS). Under the guise of Islam, these IBs and ISFS in fact are the profit maximising business ventures. Their business practices are not in compliance with relevant rules and practices of Shari`ah. Nevertheless, due to absence of a strong yet dedicated regulatory body, no challenge can be mounted against them. The customer base of these IBs and ISFS is only on a note of well wish and good faith. But in absence of a watch dog, the good-will turns out to be a tool to betraying public trust. One the other hand, it makes mockery with the entire IF industry. Most of these )Bs and )SFS today grant their Shari`ah Advisory Committeesǯ ȋSACsȌ advisory role making their findings voluntary and optional. There may be a true compliance for correcting any breaches found by these bodies, but yet, legality works in a particular way. In absence of an executive power being granted to these bodies as which is also ingrained in the constitution, a bank or institution will fail the legal definition of it being Shari`ah-compliant. Compliance with the Sahri`ah in transactions is either obligatory or optional! There is no second way! At the end, the issue boils down to that of conscience and compliance where one is made victim for lack of it on the part of regulatory establishment. Whereas on the part of the subjected businesses, they are no more than mere ventures that are bent on making profit by any means using appealing slogans! Given the current practice of IBs and ISFS, the study suggests that their SACs must function independently and beyond the control of banks' own executive apparatus. The setting of these SACs and the executive power thereof must be ingrained within the constitution or basic rules. Among others, their power must include disciplinary measures being granted to these SACs by which they may disciple any failing managers or officials for noncompliance. Most of such IBs and ISFS seem to fail on this crucial provision. Therefore, the study finds that such IBs and ISFS are not legally Islamic.

PROBLEMATIKA ZAKAT KORPORASI DI INDONESIA

Zakat korporasi merupakan salah satu kewajiban yang harus ditunaikan oleh perusahaan seperti yang telah disebutkan dalam fatwa Majelis Ulama Indonesia ke 3 tahun 2009, dan juga telah disebutkan dalam Undang-Undang zakat No. 23 Tahun 2011 Bab 1 Pasal 4 ayat (2) bagian c dan ayat (3), banyak perusahaan berlabel syariah yang tersebar diseluruh Indonesia dan terhimpun dalam Daftar Efek Syariah, banyaknya perusahaan tersebut tidak berbanding lurus dengan realisasi zakat perusahaan yang diterima oleh lembaga penghimpun zakat seperti BAZNAS. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode kualitatif deskriptif dengan wawancara mendalam sebagai alat penggali informasi, data diolah dan divalidasi dengan metode triangulasi sebagai alat untuk validasi hasil temuan dari hasil wawancara. Penelitian memiliki 3 tujuan, pertama, menganalisis pengaruh fatwa terhadap zakat korporasi, kedua menganalisis peran pemerintah dalam mendorong zakat korporasi, ketiga menganalisis permasalahan yang terjadi dalam zakat korporasi di Indonesia. Hasil penelitian menujukkan bahwa fatwa MUI sifatnya tidak mengikat, sehingga fatwa sangat mudah disepelekan, Pemerintah lebih berpihak pada pajak dan CSR, sehingga mempengaruhi penerapan Fatwa dan UU zakat korporasi, ketika perusahaan-perusahaan di hadapkan dengan regulasi pajak dan CSR yang begitu ketat, maka hal itu menjadikan zakat korporasi ini dipandang sebelah mata, begitupula dengan perumusan Undang-Undang Zakat ini yang tidak memiliki regulasi untuk mewajibkan muzakki dalam menunaikan kewajibannya untuk membayar zakat korporasi.

DETERMINANTS OF ISLAMIC FINANCIAL EXCLUSION IN INDONESIA

The study aimed to uncover the determinants of Islamic financial exclusion in Indonesia by gathering responses from financially-excluded respondents. A total of 110 respondents were surveyed, representing five provinces: West Java, South Sulawesi, Aceh, East Kalimantan, and North Maluku. The criteria of the selected participants included those who were financially-excluded, those who did not own any Islamic financial products, those without savings or financing, and those with no capital market products. The study employs Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) to identify indicators explaining Islamic financial exclusion determinants in Indonesia. The paper found that location is the key barrier to obtaining financing from and being able to build savings in Islamic banks/Islamic microfinance, while a lack of financial knowledge is identified as the critical barrier when dealing with Islamic capital market products. Overall, most respondents perceived human capital and products and services to be the two most significant determinants of Islamic financial exclusion in Indonesia, followed by infrastructure, policies and regulation, financial literacy, social influence, and religious commitment. The originality of the paper lies in its detailed insight into the perception of being financially excluded on factors leading to Islamic financial exclusion

Green Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles Using Euphorbia wallichii Leaf Extract: Its Antibacterial Action against Citrus Canker Causal Agent and Antioxidant Potential

Biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles are emerging as attractive alternatives to chemical pesticides due to the ease of their synthesis, safety and antimicrobial activities in lower possible concentrations. In the present study, we have synthesized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using the aqueous extract of the medicinal plant Euphorbia wallichii and tested them against the plant pathogenic bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis, the causative agent of citrus canker, via an in vitro experiment. The synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by techniques such as UV-Vis spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis and transmission electron microscopy. Moreover, the plant species were investigated for phenolics, flavonoids and antioxidant activity. The antioxidant potential of the extract was determined against a DPPH radical. The extract was also evaluated for phenolic compounds using the HPLC technique. The results confirmed the synthesis of centered cubic, spherical-shaped and crystalline nanoparticles by employing standard characterization techniques. A qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of phenolics (41.52 mg GAE/g), flavonoids (14.2 mg QE/g) and other metabolites of medicinal importance. Different concentrations (1000 µg/mL to 15.62 µg/mL—2 fold dilutions) of AgNPs and plant extract (PE) alone, and both in combination (AgNPs-PE), exhibited a differential inhibition of X. axanopodis in a high throughput antibacterial assay. Overall, AgNPs-PE was superior in terms of displaying significant antibacterial activity, followed by AgNPs alone. An appreciable antioxidant potential was recorded as well. The observed antibacterial and antioxidant potential may be attributed to eight phenolic compounds identified in the extract. The Euphorbia wallichii leaf-extract-induced synthesized AgNPs exhibited strong antibacterial activity against X. axanopodis, which could be exploited as effective alternative preparations against citrus canker in planta in a controlled environment. In addition, as a good source of phenolic compounds, the plant could be further exploited for potent antioxidants.
