International Journal of Islamic Business & Management en-US (Managing Editorial Board) (Editorial Assistant) Mon, 27 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0000 OJS 60 Workforce Management Based On Charity in Muslim Organizations <p>Islamic literature highlights eight major functions of Islamic HRM; namely HR planning, recruitment, selection, orientation, performance appraisal, training and development, compensations and benefits, and career development. The objective of this paper is to consider the Divine Science of Charity as it applies to organizations as a form of workforce management. Firstly, in order to properly apply the divine laws of charity in any hierarchy, every employee should be allocated to a position correlating to their skill level. In addition, if everyone in the company is willing to please Allah (SWT) by helping personnel under supervision (muʿāmalāt), it will result in minimum friction between employees, meanwhile boosting the morale and engagement of all personnel. This will result in the maximized efficiency of the workflow at each level of the organization. Moreover, the reward for charity–leaders is happiness, which will allow them to create an enjoyable environment in the workplace. For the 2nd divine law of charity, each member of the company will be able to self-purify their soul and add the workflow as good deeds in the Eternal Path of Charity.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Zin-Eddine Dadach ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 27 Jul 2020 22:30:04 +0000 Morocco's Participative Banking Sector: A Cross-Analysis of Current State, Opportunities and Challenges of Its Five Banks and Three Windows <p>Launched two and a half years ago, the model of Islamic banking adopted by Morocco consists of five banks and three windows. This paper aims to present an exploratory case study of the performance of the eight actors of Morocco participative banking. The study reveals an increase of Murabaha funding and deposits while the total net profit remains negative (MAD -420 million) mainly due to the start-up costs absorbing an enormous amount of resources. Presented in a SWOT Analysis, the study’s results confirm that the sector is facing many difficulties and gaps that negatively affect the business especially the incomplete participative financial ecosystem. Then, the paper presents a benchmark study of Turkey’s participation in banking. Findings show that the financial ecosystem in Turkey is much more developed compared to Morocco. Consequently, this situation favored the rise of the five operational participation banks whose asset growth rate reached 99%, between 2014 and 2018, and recorded positive net profits which exceeded TL 2 billion. Nevertheless, both Morocco and Turkey participation banks are still too young and can make headway only if the regulators and the operators properly address the challenges which hamper their development.</p> <p><strong>JEL Classification</strong>: G21, 057.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Oumniya Amrani, Amal Najab ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 31 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Islamic Bank Safety Net Issues: The Regulatory Challenges for Cross Border Islamic Banking Transactions <p><em>This paper aims to identify major regulatory challenges in </em><em>the safety net for providing insurances to the depositors in the cross-border transaction over the world.</em> <em>The study found that Islamic banking is facing major challenges to issue appropriate rules and regulations for providing the right safety against the deposit of customers with a conventional counterpart base on the Islamic shariah principles.
