Islamic Finance Message

Posted on 3rd July 2012 by Camille Paldi,

Lebanon, where East meets West and the location of the first miracle of Jesus

With Ramadan fast approaching, now is a good time to reflect on industry achievements and the direction of Islamic finance in general.  In a conventional, competitive, and secular world, Islamic finance represents a chance to implement Divine direction into an environment rapidly commercializing and falling into the comprehensive clutch and trap of man’s law. Soon we may enter an era completely devoid of religion and walk an earth where God is completely forgotten and cruelty and competition reigns.  It is a good time to remember that the implementation of Islamic finance encourages people to think of God and their divine origin and purpose and it is an implementation of a system that encourages the cooperative possibility and nature of man rather than the individualistic and selfish wealth- seeking competitor.  In Islamic finance, we remember the poor and the needy, morality, and healthy trading and competition, however, all subservient to what the Creator has planned for us.  For He is the only one that has power over all things.  So when we continue with Islamic finance, remember that each person has something to contribute, whether male or female, muslim or non-muslim, regardless of nationality or country of origin and that each person who undertakes to promote Islamic finance becomes a positive representative of Islam to the world.  In a globe increasingly hostile to the last beacon of hope against complete secularization, I encourage those already established in Islamic finance to remember that Islamic finance is for humanity and not about domination or egotistical satisfaction.  You will receive what Allah has granted you, regardless of the activity of anyone else.  We should all be working together to ensure the survival of Islamic finance into the future, especially in a world that would rather see its true form disappear. Remember it’s not what they think about me, it’s what they think about God.  It’s not about you.
