1.0 INTRODUCTION

In Malaysia, there are numerous financial instruments and concepts available for customers to choose, which one is suited to them. Financial instruments that available in Islamic Banks in Malaysia are divided into two main components which are known as deposit; and loans and advances. Bay’Bithaman Ajil (BBA) and Murabahah are 2 types of Islamic financing product offered by banks in Malaysia and were introduced in 1983. The Islamic financing product of Murabahah was introduced to meet the above Quranic verse interpretation. It should be noted that BBA is a Murabahah product but the product name of BBA was given by BBMB to differentiate between a short term (below 12 months) and long-term (above 12 months) tenor financing products. Murabahah is for short term meanwhile BBA is for a long term financing products.

2.0 BAI’ BITHAMAN AJIL (BBA)

2.1 DEFINITION

The Majallah refers to BBA as the Bai’ al Muajjal. In Pakistan the term is called Bai’ al-Muajjal, in Bangladesh it called bay’al-Muazaal. BBA means a "deferred payment sale". It is a sale contract in which the payment of the price is deferred and payable at a certain particular time in the future. It is a mode of Islamic financing used for property, vehicle, as well as financing of other consumer goods. It can be implicated in any sale contract, including Musawamah and Murabahah but it is not applicable for a Salam contract, as the payment of Salam must be settled in full at the beginning of the contract.

Technically, this financing facility is based on the activities of buying and selling. The furniture that you wish to purchase for example, are bought by the bank and sold to you at an agreed to price, after the bank and you determine the tenure and the manner of the instalments.

...Major Differences in Equity-financing and Debt-financing In Islamic Finance And Conventional Finance In equity financing, there are practically no major differences. The contract of al-Musharakah (Joint-Venture ProfitSharing) is, in essence, similar to the conventional concept of joint-stock company. Therefore - except for some minor to finance projects through equity participation, to float a company on the stock exchange, to organise a venture capital company, or to form an equity unit trust, would be generally the same under the Islamic equity-financing as under the conventional equity-financing. The contract of Al-Mudharabah (Trustee Profit-Sharing) - whereby one party (the owner of capital) provides fund for the other party (the entrepreneur) to invest or trade and generate profit and both share in the profit in pre-agreed proportions - while not widely practised is actually not totally unknown in the conventional financial system. A clear example is the occurrence of this type of contract sometimes in portfolio management business. However, major differences between the Islamic financial system and the conventional financial system prevail in debt financing. Debt financing in the conventional financial system is almost totally based on interest-based lending, while this contract is forbidden (that is, Haram) in the Islamic financial system. Conversely, the Islamic debt-financing instruments of Deferred Contracts of Exchange are not generally known in the......

... enter into alliances for defending their boundaries , even enlist foreign cooperation in maintaining internal security. Vulnerability to the manipulations of multi national corporations and financial giants is however a new kind of danger, which the traditional modes of " defence " fail to handle. All the shortcomings like Primitive administrative structures, inexperienced political elite, largely illiterate electorate-that is not a position very helpful in dealing with the new danger. Protection is needed which can come only in the form of advice and, if needed, intervention, by some international agency, preferably working under the united nations system. In view of the above Islam is offering an alternative way through which all and sundry can be protected . First, it is to reassure all concerned that the Islamic economists share the anxiety justifiably caused by the current happenings in the financial markets in particular and in the economic aspect of living in general. They too share the search of a better way for managing our affairs. Second, it is to shake out those sympathizers of Islamic economics who might presume that abolition of interest takes care of all the current problems in finance and economics. There is a need to go beyond that necessary but not sufficient step in an Islamic reconstruction of man's economy. More than anything else, Islamic banking and finance, a sub-section of Islamic economics, has been a quest for......

...I. History of Islamic Banking in Malaysia Malaysia started Islamic banking in early 1980’s. Islamic Banking is especially true for Muslim world where currently Islamic banking strides at two separate fronts. At one side, efforts are also underway to convert the entire financial systems in accordance to Islamic laws (Shariah). At the other side, separate Islamic banks are allowed to operate in parallel to conventional interest based banks. Malaysia opted for the alternative gradual way of developing and implementing Islamic banking system. 1.1 Origin of Islamic Banking in Malaysia The roots of Islamic Banking in Malaysia should go back to 1963 when the government established Tabung Haji or Pilgrims Management and Fund Board. The organisatio was established to invest the savings of the local Muslims in interest free places, who want to carry out pilgrim (Haji). Tabung Haji utilizes Mudarabah (profit and loss sharing), Musharikah (joint venture) and Ijara (leasing) modes of financing for investment under the guidance of National Fatawah Committee of Malaysia. The first call for separate Islamic bank was made in 1980, in a seminar held in the National University of Malaysia. The members who attend had passed a decision requesting the government to create a special law to setup an Islamic bank in the country. Thereafter, the government had set up a National Steering Committee in 1981 to study legal, religious and operational aspects of organized an Islamic bank. The...

... an argument that sale and purchase agreement (through the payment of ten percent deposit), has created a beneficial ownership in favour of the customer. Although this principle is just an equity principle, but it is still considered as good for the customer to sell his beneficial ownership to the bank under the Property Purchase Agreement. However, whether or not the Sale and Purchase Agreement can create beneficial ownership is still a contentious matter. It has been argued that since BBA is actually a kind of sale contract, the transfer of ownership and taking of possession must truly happen. In terms of the practice of BBA in Malaysia, the execution of PPA and PSA in the facility should result in transfer of ownership, irrespective of whether the registration of the transfer is made or otherwise. However, in the case of Dato’ Haji Nik Mahmud bin Daud v Bank Islam, where the issue arisen was whether the execution of PSA and PPA amounted to a transfer of ownership of the Malay reserved lands in question. The court in this case held that it was never the intention of the parties to involve any transfer of ownership and that the executions of the PPA and PSA were part of the process required by Islamic banking procedure. Here, the court found that Dato Hj Nik Mahmud was all along the registered proprietor of the properties as no transfer was being affected. Although justice and equity have been carried out in this case, the judgement caused conflict with the concept of BBA...

... business venture and gets a return on the funds he puts into the business based on a profit sharing ratio that has been agreed earlier. The principle of Mudharabah can be applied to Islamic banking operations in 2 ways: between a bank (as the entrepreneur) and the capital provider, and between a bank (as capital provider) and the entrepreneur. Losses suffered shall be borne by the capital provider. Here is how it works: 1) Customers supply funds to the bank after agreeing on the terms of the Mudharabah arrangement. 2) Bank invests funds in assets or in projects. 3) Business may make profit or incur loss. 4) Profit is shared between customer and customer’s bank based on a pre-agreed ratio. 5) Any loss will be borne by customer. This will reduce the value of the assets/ investments and hence, the amount of funds customer have supplied to the bank.

...Farhan Ilyas Islamic banking is banking or banking activity that is consistent with the principles of sharia and its practical application through the development of Islamic economics. The Basic Difference between Capitalist and Islamic Economy Islam does not deny the market forces and market economy. Even the profit motive is acceptable to a reasonable extent. Private ownership is not totally negated. Yet, the basic difference between capitalist and Islamic economy is that in secular capitalism, the profit motive or private ownership are given unbridled power to make economic decisions. Their liberty is not controlled by any divine injunctions. History of Islamic Banking: Since the beginning of the 18th century, banking has been conducted on an interest-based system of lending money to those in need. With no other alternative available, people had no choice but to borrow money at often high interest rates. This lead to the formation of an unfair system that brought unnecessary hardship on people It was this need for a fair financial system that brought about the birth of Islamic banking in the mid-1970s. Its objective was to provide a financial alternative that was fair, transparent and above all, a source of economic upliftment for all those in need Islamic banking, enlightened with the guidance of Islamic Shari‘ah principles, emerged as an alternative financial system that neither gave nor took interest, thereby introducing a fair system of social justice and...
