Islamic Investment Principles are strictly observed by Hejaz. For an investment fund to comply with Shariah Law, there are a number of principles it must abide by:
Riba (prohibition of interest or usury)
Haraam income (impermissible investments)
Maisir/maysir (speculation and/or gambling
Gharar (excessive uncertainty)
These principles are derived from interpretations of two sources: the Qur’an and the Sunna (the path of the Prophet). Shariah law governs all aspects of Muslim life and therefore imposes certain restrictions on finance and investments within the Islamic tradition. The below text provides a simple English explanation of basic Islamic investment principles observed by Hejaz.
