In the mean time, I would like to share the very recent case of Arab-Malaysian Merchant Bank Bhd v Silver Concept Sdn Bhd  6 MLJ 295 which was decided by the learned judge Dato’ Abdul Wahab Patail. Click Here
Unlike in the earlier case of Arab Malaysian Finance Bhd V Taman Ihsan Jaya Sdn Bhd & Ors (Koperasi Seri Kota Bukit Cheraka Bhd, third party)  5 MLJ 631, the court held that that BBA facility in this case is a bona fide sale since there was a novation agreement which indicates that the bank is the legal purchaser and rightful owner of the properties and therefore rendered the transaction as a Shari’ah compliant facility. By the way, the court asserts that there must be a conscious effort in the form of novation agreement or any other valid instruments to make the transaction into a true and formal sale which is acceptable under the Shari’ah principles.
