The severity of the current financial crisis has shaken the foundations of the capitalist financial system and has led to the search for ideas and solutions. This paper identifies the failure of risk mitigation at different levels as the main cause of the crisis. While following the principles of Islamic finance would have prevented the occurrence of the crisis, the practice of Islamic finance of mimicking its conventional counterpart can make the industry vulnerable to similar crises. Lessons for the Islamic financial sector are drawn by suggesting ways in which risks can be mitigated at the levels of institutions, organisations and products. In doing so, some key risks arising in Islamic finance are identified and various ways in which the Islamic finance sector can be made stable and resilient are proposed.
