Initiation à la Finance Islamique

La finance islamique se distingue des pratiques financières conventionnelles par une conception différente de la valeur du capital et du travail.

Ainsi, ces pratiques mettent en avant l'éthique et la morale et puisent leurs sources dans la révélation divine et de la Sounnah tout en s’inspirant des pratiques économiques et financières à l’époque du prophète (saws).
