How Islamic finance can help address global inequity

The principles behind Islamic finance, such as the right for all people to enjoy a minimum standard of living, and ethical limitations to what is in the public interest, have the potential to help address many of the underlying causes of global inequity.

These principles are at the heart of practices like Waqf (a type of endowment) and Zakat (which requires eligible Muslims to give 2.5% of their wealth to charitable causes annually), and are central to Islamic Relief’s programmes and microfinance initiatives to support those most in need.
