Since the discovery of oil in the Middle East an increasing number
of important contracts must be framed in accordance with the
Shari'a. Moreover various factors have helped to create among
Muslims a more acute sense of an original Islamic identity and a
collective feeling that Shari'a should govern their lives not only
with regard to personal and family matters but also as a valid and
reasonable corpus of commercial and civil laws. The ban on taking
interest (riba) and the rejection of chance contracts (gharar) are
two features of an Islamic law of contract which contrast with the
secular man-made legal systems of the West. This book is concerned
with these two Islamic prohibitory rules and with the interest-free
banking system which has developed therefrom. This is a new
enlarged edition where the comparative examination of the topics of
the book is updated and furthermore extended to cover the Shi'a
Ja'fari fiqh. As a result all aspects are examined in the light of
the teachings of the four Sunni schools - which hold authority in
the Arab states and in Pakistan - of the Ibadis strongly present in
Oman and of the Shi'a Ja'faris prevalent in Iran and largely
present in Iraq, Bahrain, Kuwait and Lebanon. The new edition will
confirm the use of the initial one as a text book with a particular
appeal to academics and practising lawyers. It also provides an
insight into the religious and ideological foundations claimed by
