International Association of Islamic Banks (IAIB)
International Association of Islamic Banks (IAIB) was founded in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, under the auspices of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) on the 7th of Ramadan 1397 (H) corresponding to August 21, 1977 with the efforts of Muazzam Ali. A Board of Directors comprising of foreign Ministers of various Muslim countries was constituted under the chairmanship of His Highness, Prince Mohammed Al-Faisal Al Saoud and Mr. Muazzam Ali was appointed as Vice Chairman. An Asian Secretariat was also established in Karachi, Pakistan in March 1984 With Mr. Muazzam Ali as the Founder Chairman.
Muazzam Ali firmly believed in the concept of Islamic economics. After leaving Pakistan in early 1970’s, he was associated with the Islamic Counsel of Europe in London and then with the Dar Al Maal Al Islami (DMI) Trust. After serving DMI as Vice Chairman for nine years, Muazzam Ali established the Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance (IIBI) in London and an office in Karachi and devoted his efforts to the International Association of Islamic Banks. The fundamental thrust of both organizations is that a Shariah compliant banking system be encouraged and this can only successfully operate if there is adequate training for prospective personnel in this field.
The fundamental objective of the IAIB which publishes the Journal of Islamic Banking and Finance is to augment and enforce ties and links amongst Islamic financial institutions and promote intra-cooperation and co-ordination. It is also designed to ascertain the institutions’ Islamic observance and character in order to achieve their common and mutual goals.
