BNI Syariah Literacy "The Difference between Islamic & Conventional Banks Part 1"

Assalamualaikum Sahabat Hasanah, so, what actually are the Differences between Islamic Banks and Conventional Banks? Islamic Banks carry out their business activities based on sharia principles. Conventional Banks leverage interest. At a Sharia Bank, both profit and the risk of loss are shared by the bank and the customer, while at Conventional Banks, losses are only borne by the customer. Furthermore, at an Islamic Bank there is Sharia Board Supervisor (DPS) that assesses sharia banking products and operational processes to ensure that they are sharia compliant. Let's look at the following video for more information.

Assalamualaikum Sahabat Hasanah, there are also differences in terms of internal operations between Islamic Banks and Conventional Banks. The difference is that Sharia Banks avoid usury. When you borrow money from Islamic banks, you cannot borrow excess funds. This is because usury and charging of interest is haram in Islam. Islamic Banks work on the principle of purchasing and buying when it comes to financing as exemplified by the teachings of the Prophet Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam on the principle of purchasing and selling. Let's look at the following video for more information.
