Frequently Asked Questions

The Personal Finance product by Emirates Islamic is a Shari'a compliant solution which is based on the purchase and sale of certificates called EI Funding Certificates (“Certificates”).

The Certificates are Shari'a compliant Certificates deposited in Nasdaq Dubai. The value of each certificate is USD 10.00-. The Certificates represent a common share in Shari'a compliant assets such as e.g. Sukuks, equity, real-estate assets etc.

Murabaha is a form of Shari'a compliant sale contract whereby Emirates Islamic (as a seller) sells the Certificates to the customer for a price equal to the Certificate Cost (the finance amount) plus the Murabaha Profit.

The Murabaha offer for Personal Finance is valid for three (3) hours from the time you receive the email.
On expiry of the cut-off time, if we do not receive a response from you, Emirates Islamic will consider the Murabaha offer for Personal Finance is accepted by you.

Once the Murabaha Sale is executed the Customer then has 2 options:

  • Option 1: Advise us of your custody account number with Emirates Islamic Financial Brokerage L.L.C. to which the Financing Asset will be transferred upon completion of the Murabaha Contract; or

If you have not chosen any of the above options by the Cut-off Time, then Emirates Islamic through Emirates Islamic Financial Brokerage L.L.C. will sell the Certificates owned by the Customer to another party and transfer the sale proceeds to your Emirates Islamic account.
