Over the past years Islamic finance has experienced tremendous development, and this is due to the effort of many parties, including the Shari’ah scholars, market practitioners and regulators. It is hoped that such efforts will continue in the future, as the Islamic finance industry still has a long way to go before it matures and fully develops.
