In this book, the author will examine the Abrahamic principles underpinning Islamic finance, the rationale for a distinct economic system based on Islamic values originating from the moral teachings of Islam, Islamic finance dispute resolution and some of the problems experienced in adjudicating Islamic finance disputes in the conventional court system, and solutions in the field of Online Dispute Resolution for the Islamic finance industry as Online Dispute Resolution or (“ODR”) is the wave of the future.

Paldi also authored the book ‘Dispute Resolution in Islamic Finance: Problems and Solutions’. My latest work includes a book chapter entitled ‘Unlocking Dispute Resolution in Islamic Finance’ with IGI Global Publishing in ‘Handbook of Research on Theory and Practice of Global Islamic Finance’ (2020) edited by Abdul Rafay. As the Islamic finance industry is growing annually at a rate of 10% to 15% per year, it is imperative that a unique, independent legal framework is established in order to effectively adjudicate Islamic finance disputes, sukuk bankruptcies, and takaful disputes. The aim of this chapter is to explore the role of the proposed Dubai World Islamic Finance Arbitration Center (“DWIFAC”) and its’ jurisprudence office (“DWIFACJO”) plus the Sukuk Bankruptcy Tribunal (“SBT”) and the Takaful Tribunal (“TT”) as the dispute resolution center of the Islamic finance industry. The objective of the chapter is to show how using a common law jurisdiction inadvertently transforms Islamic financial transactions into conventional disputes. Through case analysis combined with an exploration of the efficacy of existing arbitration centers and dispute resolution methods available to Islamic finance, this chapter will seek to reveal that the Islamic finance industry currently lacks an adequate dispute resolution mechanism and facility to adjudicate disputes arising from Islamic finance contracts including sukuk and takaful contracts.
