Its rapid global growth has generated many questions about its conceptual basis and ethics in different jurisdictions. many end-users, however, have now become critical about the foundations of Islamic banking and finance, and by necessary extension,about its product and facilities. The number of cases and disputes brought before the court of law, questioning the legality. of these products, and the diverse and at time conflicting decisions by judges thereon, is but one indicator as to how fast or how far thoughts, perceptions and understanding about Islamic banking and finance have advanced and metamorphosed.
