Halal Mortgages & Investments

Manzil is the only provider of Islamic finance in Canada that follows all guidelines for Shariah governance established by AAOIFI.

Who is AAOIFI?

AAOIFI, based out of Bahrain and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain, is the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions.

AAOIFI Requires Three Layers of Shariah Governance

  • 1 An Internal Shariah Auditor
  • 2 An Active Shariah Advisory Board
  • 3 An Independent Auditor

Why AAOIFI Compliance Matters?

AAOIFI includes scholarly opinions from several Muslim schools of thought and is generally considered to be the gold standard for Islamic finance rules. Eighteen countries have adopted AAOIFI standards for their Islamic finance industries, and the Islamic finance authorities in another six countries issued guidelines for Shariah compliance derived from AAOIFI standards.

Many banks, investment firms, capital market institutions, auditing firms, and training institutions also follow AAOIFI standards.
