Islamic finance

DMCC is at the forefront of advancing the Islamic finance industry globally through its commitment to innovative, Sharia-compliant finance solutions. The DMCC Tradeflow platform is central to this effort, offering specialised products like the Commodity Murabaha Solution, which facilitates the registration and transfer of commodities according to Sharia principles and caters to Islamic banks in the GCC and Asia. The platform is recognised for its compliance, having been endorsed by authoritative bodies and awarded for its excellence in Islamic finance.

Another cornerstone product is Salam, a Shariah-compliant financing mechanism for advanced payment for future goods delivery. This solution is ideal for buyers seeking specific commodities with upfront payment, ensuring compliance with Islamic principles.

Underpinning these services is DMCC’s Internal Shari'a Supervisory Committee, comprising esteemed scholars like Dr Jassim Alshamsi and Sheikh Dr Mohammad Al Olama. Their expertise ensures strict adherence to Shari’a principles across all DMCC financial products and services. This committee's role is crucial in maintaining the integrity and compliance of DMCC's Islamic financial offerings.
