    Indexing & Abstracting


  • ­­Journal of Islamic Social Finance

    ­­Journal of Islamic Social Finance is a new journal under the management of the IIUM Institute of Islamic Banking and Finance (IIiBF), which aims to provide a platform for academic discourse and dissemination of advances in knowledge focusing mainly on issues in the areas of Islamic social finance.

    Islamic social finance is one of the main Muslim scholars’ contributions in the contemporary time, which include areas such as Zakat, Waqf, Sadaqah, Infaq and Islamic microfinance. By incorporating both the financial and social aspects, Islamic social finance has wide applications in the context and realities faced by Islamic banking and finance today. Islamic social finance has also been identified as a tool to strengthen the role of Islamic banking and finance in supporting the sustainability agenda currently pursued at both the domestic and global levels. Despite the increasingly significance and influential role of Islamic social finance, a specific journal catering for the advances in knowledge in this pertinent area of Islamic finance has yet to be established. This provides the motivation for the IIiBF (as a center of excellence in the area of Islamic banking and finance) to take the initiative to establish a journal focusing on Islamic social finance. The establishment of the JISF will provide a unique platform for quality articles in the vast areas of Islamic social finance to be published and widely disseminated.

    The objectives of the JISF are to:

    1. provide a platform for publication of peer reviewed and high-quality articles and research in pertinent issues in Islamic social finance written in English and Arabic.
    2. encourage specialists (academicians and industry-players) to publish their findings in the areas of Islamic social finance.
    3. provide a platform for wide dissemination of knowledge in niche area and new frontiers of Islamic finance.

    Journal Scope

    The areas of coverage of the JISF includes but not limited to:

    1. Zakat
    2. Waqf
    3. Takaful
    4. Sadaqah
    5. Fintech for Islamic Social Finance
    6. Islamic Financial Inclusion
    7. Islamic Microfinance
    8. Other contemporary issues in Islamic Social Finance


    The medium language: English and Arabic.

    Arabic papers must have title, authors, abstract, key words and references in English/Roman script, as required for indexation.
