Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Resolution No.(181)(13/2012) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies: "Islamic Banks Subscribing in the Jordan Deposit Insurance Corporation"
Date: 4/11/1433 AH, corresponding to 20/9/2012.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
On the above given date, the Board reviewed the question sent by the Director-General of the Jordan Deposit Insurance Corporation(JODIC), which reads as follows: What is the ruling of Islamic Sharia on deposits insurance at  Islamic banks and reviewing the amendment of the Corporation`s draft-law pertaining to that?
After researching and deliberating, the Board arrived at the following view:
Deposits at Islamic banks  enjoy special characteristics compared to those at non-Islamic banks, because of the difference in the types of accounts.
Therefore, the Board approves of the draft-law which stipulates binding Islamic banks with the insurance of their credit accounts. As regards investment accounts, the annual subscription paid to the Deposit Insurance Corporation should be collected from the holders of these accounts as a deduction against risk. This binds the Corporation to create two independent portfolios at the deposit insurance fund of the Islamic banks, one for the insurance of credit accounts deposits and the other for the investment accounts deposits.
It was made clear to the Board that the amended draft-law rests on values of solidarity and cooperation, and that the amounts paid on this basis are considered donations , and that it(draft-law) aims at protecting people`s funds against risk. In case of liquidation, the capitals of this fund are deposited at the Zakat Fund of the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and Holy Places.
Accordingly, the Board is of the view that establishing this fund for the insurance of deposits at Islamic banks is permissible, and that the suggested amendments of the draft-law comply with the accredited standards of Islamic Sharia.
