"The papers in this volume contributed by scholars and practitioners demonstrate that Shariah compliance in sukuk structuring remains a challenge. They also remind us of the need to resolve the issue of overlapping jurisdictions that govern sukuk under the common law and the Shariah. This book will be of interest to members of the legal profession, especially in the corporate sector, and in Islamic banking and finance" - Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamad (former Chief Justice of Malaysia).
