Syariah law, Islamic banks, conventional banks


Islamic banking is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world today. The purpose of this research is

to find out the implementation of syariah law in Islamic banking based on previous research. Syariah law is the policy

that Islamic banks must follow in their operation and value. It can be an alternative for Muslim population to avoid

riba or usury in their financial activity. Many scholars have been finding that Islamic banking is not pure using syariah

law. They just clone the products, systems, and even working culture from conventional banks. Our literature review

found that most Islamic banking is still trapped in the wrong environment and their human resource did not get

adequate knowledge about syariah.
