Model Agreements for Islamic Modes of Financing have been introduced in order to facilitate the existing Islamic banks and the potential market players in developing Islamic banking products in a harmonized manner (without restricting the process of product innovation). 4. Shariah Compliance Inspection : SBP conducts Shariah Compliance Inspection on the basis of recently developed Shariah Compliance Inspection Manual for Islamic Banking Institutions. Shariah Inspection helps in identifying variation in procedures adopted by different banks. The decisions on Shariah Inspection findings are also a source that helps in achieving the goal of having standardized procedures for Shariah practices in the Islamic banking industry. 5. Meetings of Shariah Advisors : When Shariah opinion is required regarding an Islamic banking issue of mutual/collective interest, the same is taken up in the meetings of Shariah advisors for discussion and possible resolution if so required. In case the issue requires detailed study/clarification, a sub committee is formed from the panel of Shariah Advisors to do some research and submit/present their findings to SBP. In case of need the matter under consideration may be taken to the SBP Shariah Board for its final resolution. Since some of the learned Shariah Advisors are based in other parts of the globe like Middle East, we also get feedback/views based on their global prospective/experience through their representatives.
