Syariah Audit for Islamic Finance Institutions

Programme Overview

Islamic Finance Institutions (IFIs) rely on Syariah compliance as the cornerstone of their operations. Consequently, ensuring Syariah compliance is of paramount importance to maintain public confidence. Neglecting the meticulous oversight of Syariah compliance can have severe repercussions for IFIs, leading to substantial withdrawals and financial losses. Thus, it is imperative to establish a comprehensive, robust, and well-functioning Syariah control mechanism that ensures end-to-end Syariah compliance in day-to-day business operations.

To achieve this, a rigorous Syariah audit and review process must be consistently in place to assess the level of Syariah compliance regularly and identify potential instances of non-compliance. This allows for the implementation of proper corrective measures. The two-day training programme has been specifically designed to provide participants with comprehensive and practical knowledge on Syariah-compliant audit and review for Islamic banking and finance.
