He said that different products of Islamic Banking and finance are playing a prominent role for the
promotion of Halal industry. In the meanwhile, Takaful is mitigating different risks as per Islamic rules
from Halal industry. Sukuk is facilitating Halal industry in different mega projects through funding other
than Islamic capital markets and Islamic funds are also improving financing in Halal industry. Different
products of Islamic banking like Murabaha, Salam, Ijarah etc. are also promoting Halal industry in
multiple ways.

He emphasized in Halal Assembly that before issuing Halal certification to any of the company, Halal
certificate issuing institutions should make sure the ways of financing. If that company avails Riba based
financing, then it should be converted from conventional financing to Islamic financing so that Halal
philosophy would be fulfilled. He said that in US $ 6.4 trillion Halal industry the volume of Islamic
banking and finance is only US $ 2.4 trillion. If we believe that US $ 2.4 trillion are being utilized for
serving Halal industry than half of the Halal industry is serving financially to the conventional banking
which is the big question mark on Halal certification which needs immediate correction.
