“An Introduction to Islamic Banking and Finance”, by Abdel Fattah M. Farah

Anyone, who is interested in doing business in the Islamic world, is advised to read this book. Besides being a great introduction into the Islamic culture, it provides great meaning to how business is conducted in this region. By being aware of the Muslims’ way of conducing businesses, it clarifies actions and communications between international business partners and substantially reduces the danger of misunderstanding. In today’s business world it is crucial to be open-minded toward other cultures and religions. By reading this book, the reader gains essential knowledge, which might result into better and more successful negotiations. I believe that without having read this book, I would made unforgivable mistakes during my first meetings in the Islamic world.
