Il ya des exigences standard fournit par la loi afin de constituer un contrat valable à savoir offre, l'acceptation, la considération, et l'intention de créer des relations juridiques. Cette exigence est plus ou moins la même chose avec l'Organisation islamique pour «AQAD 'quoi qu'il arrive avec le paquet de l'interdiction de tout élément d'incertitude, intérêts, etc pour s'assurer qu'elle est conforme à la norme de la charia. La plupart du contrat conventionnel a ignoré quelques aspects du contrat islamique comme la non-lieu dans l'échange de point ribawi, l'augmentation injustifiée de la prime, et AQAD conditionnel, qui sont totalement interdites.

1. DEFINITION

Al- Wa'ad is a term used currently which according to Islamic transaction means 'promise'. It is so interrelated with put option and call option but had been inserted with the element of Syara' and it is very much debated lately. The application of promise can be seen in several Islamic transaction concepts for example in sale and purchase, murabahah, syirkah mutanaqisah, ijarah, takaful etc. The Malaysian Accounting Standards Boards in its amendment to the Financial Reporting Standard i-1 2004 had mentioned about al- wa'ad when defining Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek which reads as follows

Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek is an Ijarah contract with an undertaking by the lessor to sell the Ijarah asset to the lessee and/or an undertaking by the lessee to purchase the Ijarah asset from the lessor by, or at, the end of the Ijarah period.
