Standard Chartered Saadiq products and benefits

Saadiq Current Account is a non-profit bearing transaction account based on Islamic principle of ‘Qard’, whereby the customer is the lender and bank is the borrower. The funds collected in Saadiq Current Account are only invested in Shariah-compliant business avenues, only like Murabaha, Musharaka, Sukuk, etc.

Saadiq Savings and Term Accounts are based on the Islamic principle of ‘Mudarabah’. Mudarabah is a special kind of partnership where one party gives money to another party for investing it in a business. The partner who invests is called Rab-ul-Mal (Investor), and the partner who looks after management is called Mudarib (Working Partner). Bank (Mudarib) invests the funds given by the account holder (Rab-ul-Mal) in Shariah-complaint businesses to earn profits, like in Islamic assets.

This profit is shared as per the pre-agreed ratio between the Bank and the customer. The product structure is based on a profit & loss sharing concept. In case of loss, the same is borne by the depositors in proportion to their investments, and the Bank (Mudarib) bears the loss of its efforts/services in managing Mudarabah.

Saadiq Home Finance is based on the Islamic structure of ‘Diminishing Musharaka’. Diminishing Musharakah is a form of co-ownership in which Bank and customer share the joint ownership of a tangible asset (e.g. house) in an agreed proportion.

It is agreed that one of the co-owners (customer) will purchase, in periodic installments, the share of the other co-owner (Bank) until the ownership of that tangible asset is completely transferred to the purchasing co-owner (customer).

Furthermore, along with the purchase of share, the (purchasing) co-owner will also make agreed periodic payments (rent) for the usage of other co-owner’s share in the asset, till ownership of the asset is completely transferred to the customer.
