"My Lord,
Increase Me In Knowledge."

The Qur’an 20:114


With origins dating back to 1980s, the Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance (IIBI) was among the first to publish a number of important books and reports, along with the IIBI’s NewHorizon magazine, that were an indispensable source of information and instruction for both students and practitioners in Islamic banking, finance and insurance.

The growth of Islamic finance was driving demand for knowledge about banking, insurance and the applicable law in general and Shari’ah requirements in particular. All the books and reports published by IIBI are free to access on the IIBI website. Other books provide access to a selection of books (old and new) and reports by other publishers that are free to access on the internet or with permission.
