Praise for The Art of RF (Riba–Free) Islamic Banking and Finance

"The Art of Islamic Banking and Finance gives a powerful, practical, and proven answer to the question of the hour: how to make banks responsible to the public they are meant to serve. The book offers not a theory but a report on how Islamic banking has successfully functioned in modern America."
—Richard Bushman, Professor of History Emeritus, Columbia University

"The Art of Islamic Banking and Finance is an insightful and sometimes surprising comparative study of the impact of Judeo–Christian–Islamic religious principles on the evolution of banking and finance in its various forms. One of Dr. Abdul–Rahman′s key observations is this: it is not so much the fundamental principles that are different between Islamic and conventional finance, but rather their interpretation and application in modern practice. This fine work will appeal not only to those who wish to understand Islamic banking, but to anyone with an interest in our financial institutions and how and why they have evolved to what they are today."
—Guy David, Partner, Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP
