GLOSSARY

Arabic is a phonetic language and all words are spelled exactly as they sound. Because the Arabic alphabet differs from the English, and English is less phonetic in nature, different English translations are available for the common words in Islamic finance. This glossary contains abbreviations used in the text as well as definitions of all Arabic terms used.
