Traces evolution and history of cash waqfs during the Ottoman empire. Argues that the institution can become a basis for Islamic banking. A mechanism of triple mudaraba should be introduced. At the first level, various persons who want to devote their funds for cash waqf should join hands to pool resources and found a cash waqf fund. The fund should be treated as a mudarib. The fund could then provide its capital to Islamic banks on long term basis, enabling the banks to provide finance for longer periods. The Islamic banks can then act as mudarib for the fund but rabb al-mal for the mudaraba companies. The mudaraba companies can then act as rabb al-mal for entrepreneurs at the third level. The mechanism solves the problem of mismatch of maturities which the present Islamic banks face.

Argues that the present day concept of insurable interest is not valid from the Shari’ah point of view. A person can have insurable interest only in his own property or life. In case of death, his insurance money would be distributed according to the Shari’ah law. However, if a person likes to buy an insurance policy for others it can be by way of sadaqa, hiba or wasiya. It will not create any insurable interest for him.
For jurists. Based on primary sources. Partially documented.

Provisions relating to quantum of damages against bodily injuries or accidental death under the law are more comprehensive when compared to the common law principles. Under the common law, compensation is decided on the extent of loss of future earnings, which may be unfair to the party liable as it is given on the basis of status, position, age or sex of the victim. The notion of compensation is dominated by an unlimited luxurious gain, rather than a reasonable and equitable indemnity against pain and suffering. Under the Islamic law compensation is not related to loss of future earnings. Instead, it is based on the principles of al-diyah and al-daman. Takaful can adopt the Islamic principles as it is more comprehensive and is free from uncertainty.
