Shariah has certain strictures regarding finance and commercial activities permitted for Muslims. It prescribes a set of criteria which needs to be satisfied before a Muslim investor or institution can invest in the equity of a given company. From the view point of Shariah law, businesses such as those dealing in pork, alcohol, gambling, conventional financial services, media or advertising, tobacco, pornography, music etc are non-permissible for investment. Furthermore, companies have to be screened so that they satisfy certain accounting ratio restrictions. INTRODUCTIONINTRODUCTION
