What Kind of Partnership Does Guidance Use?
There are various types of musharakah (partnerships) in Islamic jurisprudence.
Shirkat-ul-‘Aqd – A traditional partnership normally used for joint commercial ventures.
Shirkat-ul-Milk – Declining balance co-ownership. The program is not intended to be a commercial venture in which gains/losses are shared. The program is intended for the home buyer to buy out Guidance’s shares over time while retaining all of the appreciating value in the property.
