Webinar Features 3 Global Experts Speaking on Islamic Home Finance and Social Justice in U.S.

Reston, VA, Oct 21, 2020 - Equity and justice have always been at the core of Islamic financial principles, and that's drawing a fast-growing number of Americans to choose an Islamic alternative to a mortgage loan when they buy or refinance their home.

Learn why at a webinar Nov. 1 on Islamic Home Finance and the Benefit to Society. This free webinar will be headlined by three top global scholars on Islamic finance.

Islamic home financing is growing quickly in popularity as an alternative to a mortgage loan in the United States. It appeals to American Muslims whose faith teaches them to avoid dealing in interest, as well as to other home buyers drawn by the more equitable arrangement and the risk protections.

The webinar will touch on the values that drive Islamic financial principles and how they help stabilize the economy, distribute wealth, and protect consumers. Speakers will explain the most popular Islamic co-ownership model of home financing in America-one of the most unique home financing structures to hit the U.S. market in the last two decades.

This authentic model of Islamic home financing has been met with even greater interest among recent concerns about social justice in America.

The speakers will also answer questions from attendees.

The speakers:

  • Shaykh Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani - Chairman, Guidance Shariah Board, is a leading international expert on hadith, Islamic jurisprudence and Islamic finance. He is a member of the Supreme Court of Pakistan and the Chairman of the international Shariah Board for the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI).
  • Shaykh Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo - Guidance Shariah Board Member, USA, is a leading authority on Islamic finance in the United States. He is a member of AAOIFI.
  • Dr. Imran Ashraf Usmani - Shariah Board Member, Pakistan, is a global Islamic finance expert and author of numerous books on Islamic finance. He serves as an advisor to several banks and financial institutions.

All three speakers serve on Guidance Residential's Shariah Board, which ensures that all practices remain compliant with Islamic financial principles.
