The world has recently witnessed unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the form of health and economic crises. This pandemic has left a long-lasting impact on the global economy, and it will take some time for it to regain its strength. Nevertheless, the current times also provide an opportunity to the Islamic finance industry to continue to build on its solid foundations and leverage on the advancement of technology for better promotion and development. One of the important ways it can be done is through standardization of best practices.
In this background, the 16th edition of the AAOIFI-IsDB Islamic finance conference aims to discuss the key features of enhanced standardization and regulation in the area of Shari’ah governance and the joint work of AAOIFI and IFSB in this regard, the development of alternative benchmark rate, Maqasid Al-Shari’ah, accounting treatment of Takaful, as well as sessions on Zakah and Islamic windows. The conference will host leading industry experts, Shari’ah scholars and representatives of regulatory and supervisory authorities to shed light on the above topics in the post-COVID 19 era of Islamic finance.
