As Featured in the Islamic Finance Resources Blog

The field of Islamic Economics could be considered as the older sibling of Islamic Finance. Due to its theoretical nature it is often focused on the abstract, but that is not to say that it lacks vibrancy, color, or relevance. In fact there are various forces that are shaping this field from within and we present here a short list of papers that will be introductory to some but also highlight some of the current trends in Islamic Economics:

Role of Islamic Banks in Economic Development

Research In Islamic Economics: The Missing Fard ‘Ayn Component

An Approach to Islamic Economics

Islamic Economics: A Survey of the Literature

Islamic Finance and Economics as Reflected in Research and Publications

Obstacles to Islamic Economics Research

Towards Developing a Successful Islamic Financial System
