BIBF launches training course

June 7, 2014

MANAMA: Bahrain Institute for Banking and Finance (BIBF) is launching a training course to highlight new Sharia standards that were recently announced by Bahrain-based Accounting and Auditing Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions.

The course is taking place from June 24 to 26 and will discuss the reasoning behind these new standards, clarify their applications in common Islamic banking tools, as well as explaining their legal implications.

In addition, participants will get a clear understanding of other key Sharia standards and the Sharia basis for Islamic financial products.

"As a global leader in Islamic finance training and thought leadership, it is our duty to keep Islamic finance practitioners up-to-date with latest developments and trends within this field," BIBF Islamic Finance Centre head Hani Redha said.

Among the instructors are Dr Shaikh Nizam Yaquby and Shaikh Essam Eshaq, two of the most prominent Sharia scholars in the Islamic banking industry.
