Islamic Finance in a Nutshell is a practical guide to the core-principles of Islamic Finance and how the Islamic Financial markets work.

Designed as a quick read for practitioners who need to pick up the basics of the industry, it will enable readers to understand the differences between Islamic and Western finance. Starting with the rise of Islamic finance, the book will highlight the key areas which practitioners need to grasp to understand the marketplace. This will include financial statement analysis, Sharia'a law, and making money in the absence of interest and regulation.

The book will also provide readers with a basic guide to Arab terminology and a guide to the top financial institutions within the Islamic markets. This is an ideal guide for anyone with an interest in how these financial markets work, but who do not want to be bogged down in complex and unnecessary terminology.
