Shariah And Islamic Jurisprudence I
Sharia and Islamic jurisprudence are what govern the Middle East. Even though there are separate Middle Eastern countries, most of them practice Sharia and Islamic law and are governed by the Quran’s teachings.
It doesn’t mean you need to become a Muslim if you want to work in the Islamic banking and financing industry overseas. But you still need to understand the basics of Sharia and Islamic jurisprudence, or else you’ll have a very short career in the Middle East. Sharia law determines the rules of the banking industry, just like everything else.
If you were to disobey or break the banking rules under Sharia law, whether intentionally or not, you would face harsh penalties. That is why it is in your best interest to understand some general information about it. We offer this course to teach you these rules.
