In Islamic jurisprudence, a comprehensive ethic has been formulated governing how business and commerce should be run, how accountability to God and the community is to be achieved, and how banking and finance is to be arranged. This Handbook examines how well these values are translated into actual performance. It explores whether those holding true to the system are hindered and put at a disadvantage or whether the Islamic institutions have been able to demonstrate that faith-based activities can be rewarding, both economically and spiritually.

The chapter presents a discussion of the financial literature on Islamic private equity (PE) financing modes under moral hazard. We focus on Mudarabah and Musharakah financing methods based on a contractual approach and analyze how and when profit and loss sharing (PLS) financing methods can solve asymmetric information problems under moral hazard relying on agency models. The models show some interesting results. First, Mudarabah financing provides powerful incentive schemes to the entrepreneur. As the Islamic PE fund is not actively involved in the project and the project success depends on the entrepreneur’s effort, it leads to the first best solution. Second, Musharakah financing cannot solve the moral hazard problem. One explanation could be the fact that the project is jointly funded by the two parties and that both of them provide non-contractible efforts. Accordingly, they have to concede a share of their revenue to increase the effort incentive of the other party, which diminishes their own incentive to provide effort.

There is no doubt that the rate at which sukuk financing has been accepted in different jurisdictions outside the usual Muslim-majority countries is encouraging. This seemingly considerable feat comes with much responsibility and a proactive role for Shar_‘ah scholars and regulators. The chapter examines prevailing practices in the market and the need to enhance the Shar_‘ah compliance of the processes through proper regulation and follow-up supervision of sukuk transactions, particularly the underlying contracts. To this end, law and Shar_‘ah should complement each other with a view to ensuring compliance with the laid-down rules. A number of fundamental legal issues that are important in the ICM and consequently applicable to sukuk transactions have been raised. Some of these legal issues are either taken for granted during the drafting stage or assumed to be effective even though the philosophy underlying such issues differs from the original value proposition of Islamic economics. Therefore, it is incumbent on the stakeholders not only to promote a commercially viable industry but also to ensure that Shar_‘ah principles are observed at all stages of sukuk transactions. This is where regulation and supervision intercept in the general framework of Islamic finance.
