Islamic Finance 

A Workshop for Imams & Community Leaders

 

Muslim communities across America are increasingly considering Islamic finance as a legitimate option in order to meet their personal financial needs. Many are turning to their imams and community leaders, as their trusted guides and advisors, for direction and guidance.  This workshop will serve to strengthen the Muslim community leadership’s knowledge of Islamic finance. We strongly encourage community leaders, especially imams, who are serious about increasing their understanding of Islam’s ethical treatment of riba to attend.

 

The workshop will cover various topics related to the Islamic finance industry as a whole including the Accounting and Auditing Organization of Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI), Sharia boards, Riba and the framework behind the country’s leading Islamic home financing program offered by Guidance Residential.

 

Shaykh Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo - Shaykh DeLorenzo is a scholar with over twenty-five years of experience in teaching, research and translation, in particular, of Islamic law relating to financial transactions and investments. He has authored numerous essential resource works on the subject of Islamic banking and finance, including the three-volume Compendium of Legal Opinions on the Operations of Islamic Banks. He was a pioneer in Internet education with a course entitled “Principles of Islamic Investing” and has been a contributor to the Harvard Islamic Finance Information Program. Shaykh DeLorenzo is a member of Sharia Boards of several Islamic financial institutions internationally. He has served as secretary of the Fiqh Council of North America and was also an advisor on Islamic education to the government of Pakistan. Following a university education in the United States, Shaykh DeLorenzo studied Arabic and the Classic Islamic Disciplines in Egypt and Pakistan under noted scholars.

 

Recently the Bloomberg TV series "Faith in Finance” compiled a selection of Q&As on Islamic finance and Shaykh Yusuf was featured in this clip
