Islamic Economics and Finance A Glossary 2nd edition by Muhammad Akram Khan pdf free download

Islamic Economics and Finance A Glossary 2nd edition by Muhammad Akram Khan pdf free download. The first edition of this book titled Glossary of Islamic Economics came out in early 1990. It contained terms mainly relating to Islamic economics in vogue up to 1988. Since then, I have been working on the revised draft of this book. During the last 14 years or so, there has been a lot of expansion in Islamic finance.

There is now a well-developed market of Islamic financial instruments where Islamic financial institutions and insurance companies conduct business. I have tried to include, as far as possible, all the terms relating to Islamic finance in vogue by the end of 2002.
I have revised the title of the book to show that it contains terms relating to Islamic finance as well. There are now about 200 Islamic financial institutions around the globe. These institutions have done a lot of innovative work in designing a large number of new instruments. A host of new agreements and economic relationships have come into being in this wake.

A large number of conventional banks and insurance companies have shown interest in the emerging Islamic finance. They include Muslims as well nonMuslims. On the academic front also, there has been a flurry of activity. A number of universities now offer courses, both undergraduate as well as postgraduate, in Islamic economics and finance. There are courses available through distance learning programmes. The Internet also provides a rich resource. These developments have necessitated taking care of the new terms and concepts being coined all around in the field.

The present edition of the book tries to capture most of the developments in Islamic economics and finance over the last one decade or so. The objective has been to give a concise and correct meaning of the terms being used so that those who are not well versed in the subject are able to understand the subject easily. As is the nature of all living academic disciplines, there is no stock of terms lying anywhere relating to Islamic economics and finance. I came across these terms while reading the literature on the subject. It is possible that I may have missed some of the terms as I did not come across them.

The readers, who find such gaps may inform me so as to enable me to update the work in the future. It is not possible to name and thank any one person who has contributed towards this work, since they number so many. In fact, I owe my heartfelt thanks to all the practitioners, writers and thinkers of Islamic economics and finance. Their writings, speeches and thought have helped me in compiling this book. My special thanks are for Mr Amjad Mahmood, who worked relentlessly to insert the diacritical marks on the Arabic words. However, as usual, I alone take the responsibility for any error or omission. I hope the book will help the readers, researchers, scholars and practitioners of Islamic economics and finance in understanding the subject better.
