Introduction:

Banking plays a very significant role in the economic development of a country. After
Partition of India and Pakistan British Governments commission distributed the reserves
between Pakistan and India.

In August 1947, various Banks transferred their headquarters and funds to India. Before
partition of Pak-o-Hind, some Banks were operated which were Chartered Bank, Grind-lays
Bank, Imperial Bank of India, Australasia Bank and Habib Bank. After the independence of
Pakistan, Muslim Commercial Bank Limited, Bank of Bahawalpur Limited, Punjab National
Bank and National Bank of Pakistan were providing banking facilities to general public.

The State Bank of Pakistan was inaugurated by our great leader Muhammad Ali J innah.
On 1
st
J uly,1948. Australasia Bank and Habib Bank were providing facilities to
the Pakistans nation. After some period, Australasia Bank Limited was converted into Allied
Bank of Pakistan.

State Bank of Pakistan is a Central Bank of Pakistan. Other Banks are Commercial Banks,
Specialized Bank and Investment Banks.

Now a days in Pakistan, fifty four banks are operated with thousands of branches. Banks
are providing Banking facilities to their customers and clients by offering different services
and packages.

Pakistans banking sector consisting of Islamic Banks, Private Banks, Public Sector Banks,
and Micro Finance Banks. These Banks are doing Corporate Banking, Trade Financing,
Lease Financing and some Banks are providing online banking facilities, ATM facility and
money transfer facilities also.

Banking sector is a back bone of our economy. If this sector is making progress than whole
economy is also growing a lot. Our Agricultural sector, Industrial sector, Mining sector,
Export sector all depend on the banking industry because Banks provide long term funds as
well as short term funds to all these sectors to meet out their short term as well as long term
requirement. Hence, banking progress is necessary indeed.

Historical Background

In 1980 a Constitutional amendment by General Zia ul Haq's regime introduced a new
hierarchy of Islamic Courts. This hierarchy consisted of a Federal Shariat Court (at the level
of High Court, the highest judicial forum in a Province) and a Supreme Court Shariat
Appellate Bench (at the level of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, the highest judicial forum in
the Country) as its sole appellate forum.

The Federal Shariat Court was given the power of declaring any law repugnant to the
Injunctions of Islam. In case of such a declaration, subject to appeal to the Supreme Court
Shariat Appellate Bench, the said law would cease to exist on the date mentioned in the
decision declaring it so. However, the Federal Shariat Court's jurisdiction was barred for ten
years after its establishment from examining and declaring repugnant any fiscal, tax or
banking law. This restriction was to expire on 25.06.1990.

In 1991, two important events took place. First, General Zia's regime promulgated the
Shariah Act, which declared Islam as the supreme law of the land. Second, the Federal
Shariat Court declared interest equivalent to "riba", thus un-Islamic and illegal. Although the
General Zia's Government had already announced in 1984 that all banks will adopt Islamic
modes of financing and would eliminate riba (interest) from Pakistan, yet it had not been
done in true spirit.
After declaring its verdict in 1991, the Federal Shariat Court directed that all kinds of
transactions, whether national or international and whether Governmental or private, had to
take place on a non-interest basis. The Government and others filed appeals against this
judgment, as a result of which the execution of the judgment was stayed. Only in 1999, after
about eight years, did the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan
suddenly took up this matter and did not even allow the Government to withdraw it.

On 23.12.99, within 9 weeks of the military takeover of the Pakistan Government on
17.10.99, the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court upheld the Federal Shariat
Court ruling and declared interest illegal. The Court held (in its detailed judgment consisting
Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 13 of 151

of more than 1,000 pages) that any increase or gain over and above the principal amount of
loan is riba, thus un-Islamic. In this regard, the Court declared there was no difference
between the commercial loans for productive purposes and personal loans for consumptive
purposes. Riba covered both usury and interest and thus applied to both exorbitant and
minimal rates of interest.

The Court declared that interest is riba regardless of whether a given transaction took place
between rich, poor, Muslims, non-Muslims, or any combination of such parties. The Court
further held that interest charged by banks or financial institutions or individuals today is
riba, thus un-Islamic and illegal. The true alternative to interest, said the Court, is Profit and
Loss sharing based on musharika (joint venture), Modaraba (mutual investment fund) and
morabaha (cost-plus financing).

The Court also endorsed certain other non-interest based modes of financing such as ijara
(lease), Salam (sale) and istisna (a contract of acquisition of goods by specification or order,
where the price is paid progressively in accordance with the process of a job completion).

Keeping in mind the huge foreign debt liabilities of Pakistan, the Court held that foreign
debts are liabilities of special nature. It was stated in the judgment that these cannot be
exempted from the prohibition against interest.
The Court held, however, that this does not mean that foreign liabilities should be shunned.
The Court suggested that Government should discuss some new arrangements for the
foreign loans with the lender Governments and organizations. The Court allowed some time
for conversion of foreign transactions into riba-free mode.

The Court acknowledged that to lay down economic and monetary policies and to frame
laws is not its responsibility. On the insistence of the Government and taking advantage of
large number of expert opinions, the Court has nonetheless provided detailed guidelines for
establishment of an interest- free economic and legal framework in accordance with the
injunctions of Islam.

Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 14 of 151

These guidelines include, among others, enactment of laws to provide for necessary
prudential measures to ensure transparency, inter alias, along with the lines of the Freedom
of Information Act, the Privacy Act and the Ethics Regulations of the United States, and the
Financial Services Act of the United Kingdom; establishment of institutions like the UK
serious Fraud Office to control white collar economic crimes; establishment of credit rating
agencies in the public sector, establishment of a system of evaluators for scrutiny of
feasibility reports, etc.

INTRODUCTION TO ISLAMIC BANKING & FINANCE

Overview
For centuries Muslims have conducted business in ways consistent with Islamic
law.The entire system of Islamic Finance and business is undergoing a revival; the potential
of this sector is real and deserving of serious attention.
The classical system of Islamic finance has remained intact.
In the Islamic scheme of business and finance, money has no intrinsic value and
hence may not generate profit.
The element of risk in Islamic transactions makes people take things more seriously.
Today for many interest is more than a way of life, it is fact of life.
However there are more than 300 Islamic banks in nearly 75 countries offering
products and services to millions of people worldwide.



RIBA AND ITS PROHIBITION IN ISLAM

Definition of Riba

Riba means interest. It means
Excess compensation over and above the principle which is without due consideration




Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 33 of 151

RIBA In Quran:

1. First Revelation (Surah al-Rum, verse 39)
That which you give as interest to increase the peoples wealth increases not with God; but
that which you give in charity, seeking the goodwill of God, multiplies manifold. (30: 39)

2. Second Revelation (Surah al-Nisa, verse 161)
And for their taking interest even though it was forbidden for them, and their wrongful
appropriation of other peoples property. We have prepared for those among them who
reject faith a grievous punishment (4: 161)

3. Third Revelation (Surah Al Imran, verses 130-2)
O believers, take not doubled and redoubled interest, and fear God so that you may
prosper. Fear the fire which has been prepared for those who reject faith, and obey God and
the Prophet so that you may receive mercy.

RIBA in Hadith

1. From J abir : The Prophet, , may cursed the receiver and the payer of interest, the one
who records it and the two witnesses to the transaction and said: They are all alike [in
guilt]. (Muslim, Kitab al-Musaqat, Bab lani akili al-riba wa mukilihi; also in Tirmidhi and
Musnad Ahmad)
2. J abir ibn Abdallah , giving a report on the Prophets Farewell Pilgrimage, said: The
Prophet, , addressed the people and said All of the riba of J ahiliyyah is annulled. The first
riba that I annul is our riba, that accruing to Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib [the Prophet's uncle];
it is being cancelled completely. (Muslim, Kitab al-Hajj, Bab Hajjati al-Nabi, ; may also in
Musnad Ahmad)
3. From Abdallah ibn Hanzalah : The Prophet, , said: A dirham of riba which a man
receives knowingly is worse than committing adultery thirty-six times (Mishkat al-Masabih,
Kitab al-Buyu, Bab al-riba, on the authority of Ahmad and Daraqutni). Bayhaqi has also

Page 34 of 151

reported the above hadith in Shuab al-iman with the addition that Hell befits him whose
flesh has been nourished by the unlawful.

ISLAMIC BANKING
Islamic banking has been defined as banking in
consonance with the ethos and value system of Islam
and governed, in addition to the conventional good
governance and risk management rules, by the
principles laid down by Islamic Shariah. Interest free
banking is a narrow concept denoting a number of
banking instruments or operations, which avoid
interest. Islamic banking, the more general term is expected not only to avoid interest-based
transactions, prohibited in the Islamic Shariah, but also to avoid unethical practices and
participate actively in achieving the goals and objectives of an Islamic economy.

History of Modern Islamic Banking

The Islamic banking starts with the commencement of Egypts Mt Ghamr Saving Bank in
1963.however it faces many problems due to social and economical conditions in the
country but it surely indicated that the idea and method of Islamic Banking was practical and
can be put into practice.

Principles of Islamic Banking

Islamic banking has the same purpose as conventional banking except that it claims to
operate in accordance with the rules of Shariah, known .The basic principle of Islamic
banking is the sharing of profit and loss and the prohibition of riba (interest).Sharia
generally refers to a body of Islamic law, even though this meaning is considered very
restrictive. Sharia, which means way or path, is the legal framework within which the
Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 35 of 151

public aspects and some private aspects of life are ruled for those living within the state and
who belongs to the islamic .Sharia deals with many aspects of day-to-day life, including
politics, economics, banking, business law, contract law, and social issues
Shariah Advisory Council/Consultant
Islamic banks and banking institutions that offer Islamic banking products and services (IBS
banks) are required to establish Shariah advisory committees/ consultants to advise them
and to ensure that the operations and activities of the bank comply with Shariah principles

WHY ISLAMIC BANKING?

Islamic prohibits Riba in no unclear terms.
The nature and definition of Riba are clearly understood and today there is no
ambiguity in its definition.
Every Muslim is duty bound to withhold the dictates given by Allah and his
messenger.
Key objective is to ensure Social J ustice.
Cannot be achieved without Economic justice.
Economic justice requires a viable economic system supported by a efficient banking
system.
Interest based banking is inefficient.
Interest results in concentration of wealth.
Islamic encourages circulation of wealth and discourages its concentration in a few
hands to narrow down the distinction between rich and poor, as for as is natural and
practical.
Circulation of wealth is as important as blood in our body: Clot of blood paralyzes our
body, whereas concentration of wealthy in a few hands paralyzes economy.
Monopoly is prohibited.


Internship report on Meezan bank

What Distinguishes Islamic Banking from
Conventional Banking?

All transactions are asset-based.
It is socially responsible banking because it operates under Shariah restrictions.
Does not permit financing of prohibited goods/Industries.
It starves evil out of the society.
Conventional Banking Islamic Banking
Conventional Banking prices money. Islamic banking prices goods and services
which creates real wealth in the society leading to economic well-being.
Depositors get a fixed rate regardless of the banks profitability, thus insulating them from
the banks true performance. Profit is shared with the depositor, higher the banks profit,
higher the depositors income.
Basic Difference between Islamic and Conventional Modes of Finance
Basic Difference between Islamic and Conventional Modes of Finance

Key Misconceptions

Islamic banking looks the same as conventional banking A halal meat and haram
meat may look exactly the same but one is permissible while the other is not.

A fixed rate of return is not permitted under Islamic Shariah Fixed return does not
make a transaction halal or haram. For example:

Car Ijarah

As a step towards Meezan Banks mission to provide a one-stop shop for innovative value-
added Shariah compliant products, Meezan Banks Car Ijarah unit provides car financing
based on the principles of Ijarah and is free of the element of interest.
Car Ijarah is Pakistans first Interest Free car financing based on the Islamic financing mode
of Ijarah (Islamic leasing). This product is ideal for individuals looking for car financing while
avoiding an interest-based transaction.
Meezan Bank Car Ijarah is a car rental agreement, under which the Bank purchases the
car and rents it out to the customer for a period of 3 to 5 years, agreed at the time of the
contract. Upon completion of the lease period the customer gets ownership of the car
against his initial security deposit.

Car Ijarah, designed under the supervision of Meezan Banks Shariah Supervisory Board, is
unique to car leasing facilities provided by other banks.

Rights & liabilities of Owner v/s User
An Islamic Ijarah is an asset-based contract, i.e. the Lessor should have ownership of the
asset during the period of the contract. Under Islamic Shariah, all ownership related rights
and liabilities should lie with the owner while all usage-related rights and liabilities should lie
with the user. A conventional lease contract does not distinguish between the nature of
these liabilities and places all liabilities on the user of the asset, which is contradictory to
Islamic Shariah.


Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 77 of 151

Under Ijarah, all ownership-related risks lie with the Bank while all usage related risks lie
with the user, thus making the Lessor the true owner of the asset and making the income
generated through the contract permissible (Halal) for the Bank.
Continuation of lease rentals in case of total loss or theft of vehicle
If the leased vehicle is stolen or completely destroyed, the conventional leasing company
continues charging the lease rent till the settlement of the Insurance claim. Under the
Islamic system, rent is consideration for usage of the leased asset, and if the asset has
been stolen or destroyed, the concept of rental becomes void. As such, in the above-
mentioned eventualities, Meezan bank does not charge the lease rental.

Takaful instead of Insurance
Legally (in accordance to Pakistans Law and Regulations), it is required for all leasing
entities to insure the leased assets. As such, Meezan Bank insures its leased assets.
Meezan Bank insured its assets through Takaful only, which is the Islamic product for
insurance.

Permissibility for Penalty of Late Payment of Rent under Islamic Shariah
In most contemporary financial leases, an extra monetary amount is charged, in their
income, if the rent is not paid on time. This extra amount is the considered as Riba and is
Haram. Under Ijarah, the Lessee may be asked to undertake, that if he fails to pay rent on
its due date, he will pay certain amount to a charity, which will be administered through the
Islamic Bank. For this purpose the bank maintains a charity fund where such amounts may
be credited and disbursed for charitable purpose.

FUTURE OUTLOOK
It is interesting to note that the conventional banks are increasingly realizing the huge
potential market backed by the untapped and steadily growing appetite for Islamic
banking products; hence the drive for entering this market is based on business
considerations in addition to religious considerations. As the level of awareness and
understanding of Islamic Banking remains very low, this might pose as a threat to the
credibility to the full-fledged Islamic Banks like Meezan. For this reason, there is a
need for all banks to act in concert and help build awareness of Islamic Banking
throughout the country.
The size of Islamic Banking is expected to reach US $1.3 trillion worldwide in near
future. At present over 1,100 institutions offer Islamic finance service across the
globe. Size of investments in Islamic banking system reached Rs 424 billion till 2010
in Pakistan and the government is taking measures to encourage it. Coupled with the
fact that global sukuk issuance this year is expected to surpass US $35 billion
recorded in 2010 (when it sustained the highest issuance level), Islamic banking is
certainly growing and is here to stay.
Meezan Bank is committed to its Vision of establishing Islamic banking as banking of
first choice. The priority is to ensure that Islamic banking products and services are
available across the length and breadth of Pakistan; this will be achieved by:
Growing the branch network:
The Bank intends to renew its aggressive branch growth strategy and add 53 new
branches during the year. This will take the total branch network of the Bank to 275
giving it excellent network capability critical for the effective market penetration of a
commercial bank.
Deepen the existing and add new Alternate Delivery Channels:
Internship report on Meezan bank

Page 124 of 151

50 new ATMs will be added to the existing network of 169 ATMs. Plans are
underway to up-grade the Banks 24 hour Call Centre and additional functionality
including out-bound campaign-management will be added. A major new initiative will
be launch of the Banks mobile banking platform. The intention is to substantially
increase customer outreach and also support the financial inclusion program of the
SBP.
Improve systems and controls:
Significant focus is being given to improvement of systems and controls in the Bank.
As a part of this initiative, an internal control unit has already been set-up. In addition,
substantial investment is being made in new software applications including state of
the art KYC and AML software, among others.
Improve training and development:
As the Bank expands, sourcing and retaining the right quality of human resource is
an increasingly significant challenge. Accordingly, the Bank will build on its existing
training and development infrastructure, balancing Shariah-based training and branch
banking training.

My Conclusion
As for as business of the bank is concerned it is quite up to the mark keeping in view the
standard of banking industry. Bank is located in Township where Bank Al Habib, Habib hank
limited , Habib metropolitan bank limited as well as Allied bank and MCB are also doing
business in the same area but Meezan Bank limited is competing with all these banks and
increasing its clientele. Bank is giving better services to its customers as well as better
farcicalities to its employees, its employees are making an untiring effort to increase the
profit of the company on year to year basis as well as time their best to increase the wealth
of the shareholders. Bank is offering many products to its customers which are increasing
the margin of the bank.
As for as Profit Margin, Gross Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin and Return on Equity is
concerned, it is much satisfactory keeping in view the standard of industry. Fixed Assets
Turnover, Total Assets Turnover, Retune on Total Assets, Earning Per Share and Price
Earning Ratio are as too much satisfactory and quite up to the mark of industry which shows
that financial health of the bank is very much sound and it will be a going concern for and
indefinite period. Its profit from operation is seems to be reasonable and showing an
increasing trend on year to years basis. Further more Gross Profit Margin is also
reasonable; Profit Margin is also showing a healthy sign. Banks future is future to much
secure and it will flourish and grow in the days to come.

RECOMMENDATIONS

As for as I have observed during my training, the bank should improve the services given to
the customers so that they may feel satisfied. Bank should increase its products in order to
enhance its margin so that it may compete in the market. Further more employees are the
assets of the bank which must be motivated by the management of the bank. Employees
should be given incentive in the shape of cash award, increase in pay, promotion etc. if the
customers of the bank are satisfied and employees of the bank are hardworking as well as
loyal, the bank will make progress by leaps and bounds. Management of the bank must try
its best in order to satisfy the customers as well as motivate the employees.

As for as ratio are concerned, its current ratio is much below the standard which needs to be
increased in order to grow in the market. Working capital is the life of every organization, in
2008 working capital is in negative but in 2009 and 2010 working capital is positive but
below the standard. Working capital must be increased by the bank so that the bank may
show its short term solvency to meet out its short term debt. Debt of the company is 0.9299
in 2008, in 2009 is 0.9960 and in 2010 is 0.9284 which shows that the Bank is highly
levered. Debt of the company is on higher side which must be decreased to show it long
term solvency. Net profit Margin on sale although increasing on year to year basis but is
much below than the standard of industry which also need to be increased in order to grow
in the markets.
