Dar Al Tamleek's Shariah Board was established as the authoritative body for determining Shariah compliance. To ensure consumer confidence in the interpretation of Shariah principles, the Shariah compliance process is:
The committee meets four times per year to review all policies, procedures, contracts, and products
Each program or enhancement is reviewed with the same stringent guidelines in order to provide consistency and consumer confidence
|Shariah Compliant Contract|
|Parties in Contract||Three parties: Dar Altamleek, Seller of Property, owner|
|Number of Contracts||Two contracts: Ijarah contract with the promise of ownership and the other is Murabaha|
|Property type||Apartment/ Land/ House|
There are basically 5 basic types of Islamic home loans:
The main difference between these two types is that with a Murabaha mortgage the property will immediately be registered in your name, while with an Ijara mortgage, you can only rent the property from your sharia-compliant lender, where you'd have to pay a monthly rent and at the end of the agreed term or once the purchase price has been repaid in full, the ownership of the property will be directly transferred from the lender to you.
Forbidden home loans in Islam are the ones that involve interest which is considered (riba), it's not permissible except in cases of urgent necessity which cannot be met except by taking out a riba-based loan. Purchasing a house does not reach a high level of urgency because this need can be met by renting instead. You can rest-assured that DAT does not offer any riba-based loans.
