It is nice to learn that Islamic Banking is getting a shape to be be an emerging business, but the question is does it actually going on the way as shariah states?. The scenario from the some bank's effort worldwide to engage in islamic banking business with quick run seem to be only 'business for business'. Are they maintaining shariah properly? What is the motto of Shariah? This needs to be examine. I want write a paper on that.

Please let me know the procedure to submit the paper and benefit for writers.
