dc.description.abstractRecently, Islamic Banking has experienced exponential growth that has transformed the Malaysian finance sector. Record inflows of capital from both Muslim and non-Muslim sources alike have brought Malaysia to the forefront of Islamic financial providers. With 2004 estimates placing total Islamic assets at RM85.2 billion, or 10% of the total banking sector in Malaysia, the shape and impact of Islamic Banking and Finance will inevitably play a role in the development of the economic, political and social landscapes of the Federation. With this in mind, this thesis examines the growth of Islamic Banking in Malaysia from a religious, fiscal, and political perspective, seeking both to explain the current position of the sector in the Federation as well as its relationship with contemporary social discourse in the country.
