Istisna' (Manufacturing Sale): Literally, the word Istisna' is derived from the Arabic verb istasna'a which means to request someone to manufacture an asset. Technically, bay' al-istisna' (hereafter istisna'a) is defined as a contractual agreement with a manufacturer to produce items with specified descriptions at a determined price, and manufactured from his own materials with his own effort. If the materials needed are not provided by the manufacturer as they are from mustasni'a (the person who requests the construction of an item), the contract is considered a lease contract. See ISRA Islamic Financial System: Principles and Operations for further details.
