1) Mudaraba (The Hiring of Capital):

Mudaraba is one of the most well known investments. permissible under Islamic Shariah and widely used by all countries where Islamic systems of banking are functioning. Mudaraba finance combines financial experience with business experience. Mudaraba is a contract in profit sharing where one party provides capital! funds and the other labor/ work. Under this system, banks provide the capital and clients provide expertise and profit is shared according to agreed ratio. In case of loss, the bank bears the financial risk and the client loses only his labor! effort and his expected share of profit.

Important Features:

· Mudaraba is generally limited to self-liquidating transactions.

· The assets of Mudaraba should be easily recognizable and must be realized and liquidate so that the proceeds can be easily distributed between the partners at the termination of operations, completion of deal, or the achievement of Mudaraba objectives.

· I f the partners want to renew the Mudaraba, a new contract must be negotiated, but only after the old one has been terminated and the rights and liabilities of the parties concerned have been recognized and settled.

· Mudaraba is generally limited to trading activities.

· The entrepreneur has no right to mix the Mudaraba funds with his own funds, unless he was permitted to do so by the bank.

· Before liquidation of distribution of profits, the Mudareb possesses an uncontested right not only to his share in profits but also to any gains or appreciation in the value of output or assets of the joint venture that might occur during the life of the Mudaraba contract.

· The Mudaraba accounts must be recorded properly and the books of accounts should be audited.

2) Musharaka (Partnership Profit Sharing):

Musharaka is another type of financing mechanism used by Islamic Banks. This mode of finance is represented by two or more financiers in contributions of equal or unequal ratios of capital to establish a new project or to participate in an established one and all partners are entitled to share the total profits of the venture according to ratio as mutually agreed upon allowing for managerial skills to be remunerated; but the losses are shared exactly in proportion to capital proportion. Participation parties have the right to participate in the management of the project and at the same they may also waive this right in favor of any specific partner.

There are two types of Musharaka contracts:

· Constant (permanent)

· Decreasing (diminishing) Participation.

In the first case, the bank participates in the equity and receives share of profit on pro-rata basis annually and period of termination of the contract is not mentioned/ specified. So, the contract may continue as long as the parties concerned agree it to continue.

The diminishing partnership of Musharaka IS getting more popular In Islamic Banks because of its potentialities than permanent Muskaraka. In constant! permanent Musharaka funds are committed for a long period; but this is not so in the case of diminishing Musharaka. Decreasing Musharaka allows equity participation in the first place and share profit on pro-rata basis. This system also provides/ extends for future payments of money over and above the bank’s share in the profit as a repayment of the part of equity held by the bank. In this manner, the equity held by the bank is reduced progressively with the passage of time. After lapse of certain period of time, the bank will have zero equity and will cease to be a partner.

Important Features:

· The bank is not guaranteed a fixed return on its participation.

· Banks benefits in financing fixed assets or working capital or both lie in the profit sharing scheme between the banks and venture.

· Profits are shared pro-rata with equity and are calculated for this purpose,

after allowing for management fees and before depreciation and provisions, as non-cash- items.

3) Murabaha (Contract Sale):

Murabaha is one of the most widely used modes of finance undertaken by the Islamic Banks. About 70 to 80 percent of financial operations of the most Islamic Bank belong to this segment. It is suitable for investment for financing industry,. agriculture, trade or any other sectors. It enables the client! investor to obtain finished goods, raw materials, machinery or equipment from the local market or through import by opening letter of credit under Murabaha commercial.

Murabaha is one kid of sale transaction. Under this system of investment, a sale transaction is taken place between client and bank. The client requests the bank to purchase certain goods as prescribed by him/them with a price confirmed by. the client from a supplier! seller in the country or abroad. The bank, itself or through an agent (may be the client himself) collects all the information about the nature and specification of the goods, its price, terms of delivery etc.

Murabaha is also a double sale and bye. Under this technique, bank buys the goods upon the request of the client and then sells the goods to him/ them. The goods are purchased by the customer from the bank within a fixed period of time or by installment with a cost include cost of goods plus mark up profit. The profit mark up as fixed before the deal cannot be increased even if the client does not take the delivery within the scheduled time.

When Murabaha sale is made of deferred payment basis, this is called Murabaha -Bai­Muajjal. Under this sale. Bank sells the commodity to the client on the basis of deferred payment against an agreed price, which includes the price and mark up profit. Murabaha sale is also one kind of absolute sale, which is divided into four kinds in respect of price. These are given below:

01. Bargain Sale: Selling of commodity at a price already agreed upon irrespective of its

Purchased price

02. Tawlia Sale (respective Sale): Selling the commodity at purchased price without any additional or discount.

03. Discount Sale: Selling the commodity at a purchased price allowing certain discount.

04. Murabaha Sale: Selling a commodity at a purchased price plus certain profit as agreed upon. This profit margin may be determined on a percentage of the purchased price or a lump sum as agrees to. The last three sales are called: Amana (honesty) Sales”

4) Hire Purchase under Shirkatul Meelk:

Hire purchase under Shirkatul Meelk is a special type of contract that has been developed through practice. Actually, it is a composition of three contracts:

1) Shirkat: Shirkat means partnership. Shirkatul Meelk means share in ownership.

When two or more persons supply equity, purchase an asset, own the same jointly, and share the benefit as per agreement and bear the loss in proportion to their respective equity, the contract is called Shirkatul Meelk contract.

2) Ijarah (Leasing): The Ijarah financing under Islamic Shariah is akin to the western concept of leasing. In Ijarah financing, Islamic banks finance capital goods to industrial project against payment of a rent by installment.

In Arabic the Leasing is defined as contract between a leasing company (called as the less or) of one part and the user of the equipment asset (called the lessee) of other party whereby the lessee/ loaned agrees to pay the less or an agreed amount of money as rentals over a specified/ obligatory period of time in consideration for the use of capital equipment owned by the less or. The less or retains ownership of the equipment and seeks to receive the capital cost of the equipment plus a profit margin out of the lease rentals payable during the period of the lease.

There are two types of leases recognized under this system of investment. These are-

a. Operational Lease: Under this system of finance, Islamic Banks hold a number of various assets to respond to the needs of different customers. These assets have usually high degree of marketability. The bank rents these assets to its client who is desirous to utilize the same for a team to be agreed upon on payment of rental. After expiry of the lease period, the assets are returned to the bank. The bank then looks for new lessee.

b. Lease Purchase: The lease purchase or lease out that ends with possession is a new technique of investment innovated By the Islamic Banks. Under this system, bank does not hold the assets; but purchases the assets in response to an emphatic request from one of the customers to own the assets through lease that ends with possession. Therefore, the assets will not remain as the property of the bank at the end of the lease period as is the case in the operation lease. As soon as the purchase amount of household goods along with rental is paid off with in the lease period, the ownership of the leasehold item transfers to the lessee automatically as

per contract.

3) Sale: This is a sale contract between the buyer and a seller under which seller transfers the ownership of certain goods or assets to buyer against agreed upon price paid/ to be paid by the buyer.

Thus, in Hire Purchase under shirkatul Meelk both the bank and the client supply equity in equal or unequal proportion for purpose of an asset like land, building, machinery, transport etc, purchase the asset with that equity money, own the same jointly, share the benefit as per agreement and bear the loss in proportion to their respective equity. The share, part or proportion of asset owned by the bank, is hired out to the client partner for a fixed rent per unit of time for a fixed period. Lastly, the bank sells and transfer the ownership of its share/ part! portion to the client against payment of price fixed for that part either gradually part by part or in lump sum within the hire period or after the expiry of the hire agreement.

Hire Purchase under shirkatul Meelk Agreement has got three stages:

· Purchase under joint ownership

· Hire

· Sale and /or Transfer of ownership to the other partner Hirer.

5) Bai- Muajjal:

Bai- Muajjal means sale for which payment is made at a future fixed date or within a fixed period. Bai-Muajjal may be defined as contract between a buyer and a seller under which the seller sells certain specific goods to the buyer at an agreed fixed price payable at a certain fixed future date in lump sum or within a fixed period by fixed installments.

In bank, Bai- Muajjal is treated as a contract between the bank and the client under which the bank sells to the client certain specific goods, purchased as per order and specification of the client at an agreed price payable within a fixed future date lump sum or by installment.

6) Bai-Salam (Advance Sale and Purchase):
