Heaven's Bankers: Inside the Hidden World of Islamic Finance by Harris Irfan

The groundbreaking and globetrotting exploration of the Islamic finance industry, by one of its leading practitioners

A trillion dollar financial industry is revolutionizing the global economy. Governments and corporations across the Islamic world are increasingly turning to finance that complies with Shari'a law in order to fund economic growth. Even in the West, Islamic finance is rapidly becoming an important al?ternative source of funding at a time when the conventional finance industry is reeling from the effects of the financial crisis.  

From its origins in the seventh century, Islamic finance has sought to develop core ethical principles that are based in the foundations of Islam and Shari'a. By engaging critically with the complexities of international finance, it has evolved and adapted into a world emerging from the economic and moral aftermath of a global financial crisis. But with an increasing Western interest, is it able to remain true to the principles of its faith? Can it maintain its ideals of social jus?tice? Or is Islamic finance guilty of the very dangers it seeks to avoid?

  In Heaven's Bankers, Harris Irfan, one of the world's leading Islamic finance bankers, gives unparalleled insight into the heart of this secretive industry. From his personal ex?perience of working with leading bankers, scholars and law?yers, he debunks the myths of Islamic banking, analyzes its greatest deals and looks to the future of a system that has reprioritized the very nature of money itself.
