When launched in November 2006, Business Islamica was the first monthly magazine of its kind in the Middle East, specifically covering all aspects of Islamic business and finance both
regionally and internationally. The magazine's objective is to spearhead awareness initiatives about Shari'ah-based finance, heighten knowledge of its core principles and practices and feature the latest developments in this industry. Islamic finance, which was once considered as no more than an interesting aspect on the periphery of mainstream finance, has emerged as a major global force, developing and growing faster than its conventional counterpart. Our editorial covers interviews with key industry leaders, case studies, and features on a wide range of topics such as; Islamic Banking, Wealth Management, Takaful (IslamiC Insurance), Islamic investments, Marketing and Branding of Shari'ah-compliant products, Regulatory Issues, Islamic Financial Markets, Sukuk, Islamic Evolution and Global Islamic developments.
