    The Speech by Tsn Sri Rais Yatim was inspiring for the IBF ( Islamic Banking and Finance) World.

    The Islamic World must forge a new IBF framework in promoting Green IBF as a viable alternative to the current financial chaos brought about by total reliance on RIBA centric Theory of Economic Progress ( INTEREST-based economic activities have created a vacum of economic Black Holes within developed and develiping regions including 57 OIC Countries.

    Under Syariah law, all RIBA driven IBF endeavours are prohibited and a great barrier to true open economies.

    Ibn Taimiyyah , Ibn Khaldun, Al Shatibinomics and the whole Ahli Sunnah wa Jamaat are of the view that the World’s Economic and Financial Chaos must be free from RIBA in order to develope a transparent and dynamic Economic Ummah.

    The Dinar based concept is a good solution to the destructive “printing money problem” within western IBF realm (where paper monies are printed with no real assest back up).

    It is hope that ICIFE will pioneer a great frontier in pushing for a Positive IBF Disruptive Education in promoting IBF as a green strategic solution to RIBA Theorem of Progress.
