26.04.2011 - Guidance introduces landmark Islamic finance training for American imams
Guidance Residential formed the American Islamic Finance Project which is a collaborative effort between the Islamic Society of North America, Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance and Guidance to provide the first-ever Islamic finance training to over 100 American imams. The role of AIF is to raise the level of knowledge and understanding of Islamic financial transaction law under the belief that financial markets can benefit significantly from the ethical and moral guidelines that Islam's financial concepts provide. Muslim communities across America are increasingly considering Islamic finance as a legitimate option for their personal investment strategies and in doing so they are turning to their imams for direction, making this training more important than ever.
