Kuwait Finance House (KFH) Chairman Hamad Al-Marzouq honoured former Fatwa and Shariah Board members Dr. Ojail Al-Nashmi and Dr. Khaled Al-Mathkour for their efforts. He underlined KFH’s full commitment to Sharia, since it identifies the bank, and serves as its cornerstone.
Al-Marzouq stated that the Sharia Board balanced KFH’s operations with Sharia, and managed to assist the bank to achieve its goals and boost its performance. He added that the Shariah Board plays a vital role in ensuring that the bank’s operations are in line with Sharia regulations. He went on to say that the Sharia Board serves as an authority for Islamic banking, and its fatwas have changed the form of Islamic banking to reach broader horizons on many levels.
Meanwhile, Al-Nashmi highlighted the importance of cementing the role and status of the Shariah Board, and said that the new KFH management believes that the utmost compliance with Sharia is pivotal. He added that KFH has become a force to reckon with in the Kuwaiti economic field, in addition to representing the private sector in most countries that trust its level of professionalism and performance.
Moreover, Al-Mathkour mentioned that this honouring from KFH management is a token of appreciation in recognition of his efforts to serve such a prestigious banking institution. However, he underscored the importance of clients and other scholars who added their achievements to the bank, which allowed them to find solutions that comply with Sharia. Such efforts allowed Islamic banking to be available worldwide, and highly demanded by millions.
