Muslim investments

Muslim investments allow the two million members of the Muslim community in the UK to invest in a way that does not conflict with their religion. Islamic law forbids the charging or receiving of interest making many investment products unsuitable.

Muslim investors are allowed to receive and pay for shares and dividends but speculation is forbidden. Additionally, companies that make their money from alcohol, tobacco, pork related products, pornography, gambling armaments and human or animal genetic exploitation are not permissible for Muslims to invest in.

If an investment product has been given the all-clear for Muslims to invest in, it is likely to have been analysed by a Muslim scholar to ensure that it does not break any of the rules of Islamic law.
