Islamic Economics Forum Dialogue:

Dr. Mohd Daud Bakar at Oxford Centre of Islamic Studies (OXCIS):

In my conversation and engagement session, I articulated why profit and loss sharing is not suiltable for Islamic banks and why Islamic banks, while doing Islamic trading, must uphold the main function of financial intermediary so as not to compete with real economic players. Fiduciary functions and trust cannot be compromised no matter what.

I have also mooted that the time has come for big data analytics in our study of Islamic finance and even for Shariah studies.  The result of big data analytics exercise should also be made available to the public at affordable cost....towards democratisation of data.
