Dear My Weblog Readers,

The Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI) of the Islamic Development Bank Group based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia has organised a distance learning course on Islamic Economic and Finance. Different scholars from various parts of the world including Umer Chapra, Anas Zarka, Sami Al Suwailem, Habib Ahmed, Tariqullah Khan, Munzir Kahf, Zubair Hassan and others contribute to the course.
