Under this scheme, MCB will be the owner of the asset, and you (lessee) will be given the asset
to use for a certain period of time in return for monthly rental payments. MCB will give a separate
unilateral undertaking that it will offer to sell the asset to you (lessee) at the maturity of the Ijarah
agreement at a price that may be equal to the security deposit amount, hence the term ‘Wa
Iqtina’.

We currently offers 2 types Ijarah Products:


Car Ijarah
Equipment Ijarah

a) CAR IJARAH

Under the Al-Makhraj Car Ijarah scheme, you can get a car of your choice against monthly rentals
payable to MCB Islamic Banking

At the end of the Ijarah Agreement, you will be given a choice whether to return the car to MCB
and receive back the security deposit paid by you at the beginning or to purchase it at a price
equal to the the security deposit.

Murabahah

It is a contract between a buyer and a seller under which the later first purchases the goods at the
request of the former i.e., customer and then sells it to same customer after adding profit.

Murabah Sale Price = Cost + Expenses incurred + Agreed Profit

Diminishing Musharika Equipment

It is a contract through which the bank and its client participate in the joint ownership of a
property. The share of the Bank is further divided into a number of units and it is agreed that the
client will purchase the bank’s share periodically, thus increasing his own share until all the units
of the bank are purchased by him so as to make the client the sole owner of the property.

ISLAMIC BANKING PRODUCTS

Mudaraba
Mudaraba is a partnership in profit whereby one party provides capital (rab al-maal) and the other
party provides labor (mudarib)

Sharika al-aqd :
Sharika al-aqd (contractual partnership) means an agreement between two or more parties to
combine their assets, labor or liabilities for the purpose of making profits.

Murabaha
Murabaha is selling a commodity as per the purchasing price with a defined and agreed profit
mark-up. This mark-up may be a percentage of the selling price or a lump sum. This transaction
may be concluded either without a prior promise to buy , in which case it is called an ordinary
Murabaha, or with a prior promise to buy submitted by a person interested in acquiring goods
through the institution, in which case it is called a “Banking Murabaha” i.e. Murabaha to purchase
orderer. This transaction is one of the trust based contracts that depends on transparency as to
the actual purchasing price or cost price in addition to the common expenses.

Ijarah

This terms ijarah as used in this standard means leasing of property pursuant to a contract under
which a specified permissible benefit in the form of a usufruct is obtained for a specified period in
return for a specified permissible consideration.

Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek

One of the forms of Ijarah used by Islamic financial institutions is ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek. This
is a form of leasing contract which includes a promise by the lessor to transfer the ownership in
the leased property to the lessee, either at the end of the term of the ijarah period or by stages
during the term of the contract, such transfer of the ownership being executed through one of the
means specified in the Standard.

Salam

A salam transaction is the purchase of a commodity for deferred delivery in exchange for
immediate payment. It is a type of sale in which the price, known as the Salam capital, is paid at
the time of contracting while the delivery of the item to be sold, known as al-Muslam fihi (the
subject-matter of a Salam contract), is deferred. The seller and the buyer are known as al-
Muslam Ilahi and al-Muslam or rabb al-Salam respectively. Salam is also known as salaf (lit.
borrowing).

Parallel Salam
If the seller enters into another separate Salam contract with a third party to acquire goods, the
specification of which corresponds to that of the commodity specified in the first salam contract,
so that he (the seller) can fulfill his obligation under that contract, then this second contract is
called, in contemporary custom, parallel Salam or Salam Muwazi. The following is an example of
such a contract. An institution on one hand buys a specified quantity of cotton from farmers on a
Salam basis and in turn, the buyer in the first Salam contract enters into a new separate Salam
contract with textile mills so as to provide them, by means of that new Salam contract, with
cotton, the specification of which are similar to the specifications of the cotton to be acquired
under the first salam contract, without making the execution of the second salam contract
contingent on the execution of the first salam contract.

Istisna’a Contract

Istisna’a is a contract of sale of specified items to be manufactured or constructed, with an


obligation on the part of the manufacturer or builder (contractor) to deliver them to the customer
upon completion.

Parallel Istisna’a
Another form of istisna’a, known in modern customs as Parallel Istisna’a “al-Istisna’a al-Muwazi”,
takes effect through two separate contracts. In the first contract the Islamic financial Institution
acts in the capacity of a manufacturer, builder or supplier and concludes a contract with the
customer. In the second contract, the institution acts in the capacity of a purchaser and concludes
another contract with a manufacturer, builder or supplier in order to fulfill its contractual
obligations towards the customer in the first contract. By this process, a profit is realized through
the difference in price between the two contracts and in most cases, one of the two contracts is
concluded immediately, (i.e.the Istisna’a contract entered into with the manufacturer , builder or
supplier), while the second contract (i.e. the contract entered into with the customer) is concluded
later.
