Why is it important?

We identify the influential aspects in the literature and discuss four important research streams: (1) overview, growth, and legal framework of Islamic banks; (2) Islamic banks’ performance and risk management practices; (3) customer and marketing perspectives of Islamic banking; and (4) the dynamics of efficiency in Islamic banks.


This is one of the first studies to apply state-of-the-art methodology to review the literature related to Islamic banking and to highlight the dynamics of Islamic banks while presenting an extensive future research agenda.
