Our blogs on Islamic Social Finance deal with issues in management of organizations based on Islamic philanthropy, such as, zakat, awqaf, as also based on mutuality and cooperation and all other not-for-profit microfinance initiatives that are aimed at alleviating poverty and strengthening social solidarity. The blogs are authored by Dr Mohammed Obaidullah, Senior Economist with the Jeddah-based Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and Yayasan Tun Ismail (YTI) Chair Professor in Islamic Finance with the Islamic Sciences University Malaysia (USIM).
