Press Release

2017 will prove to be the best year for Islamic Financial market
Global Islamic Finance Certification launched in French Language
AlHuda CIBE launches Global Islamic Finance Certificate in French Language for the promotion of Islamic Banking & Finance in Francophone countries

26th January, 2017 (Lahore): French is considered as the world’s third most spoken language and it is an official language in 29 countries. According to a 2014 estimate by the “Organisation internationale de la Francophonie”, 274 million people worldwide can speak French. As per a careful estimate, the number of Muslim French speakers is comparatively more in African countries. Many Muslim Countries e.g. Senegal, Ivory Coast, Mauritania, Burkina Faso, AlJazair etc. are also utilizing this language as a first language. By knowing the importance of this language AlHuda CIBE launches the dedicated online program on Islamic Banking & Finance in French language so that Islamic Banking & Finance can be promoted in Francophone countries.

By inaugurating the program, Muhammad Zubair Mughal, Chief Executive Officer of AlHuda CIBE stated that “Undoubtedly the best solution for the economic system of the world lies in Islamic Banking and Finance and to promote this we have launched a Distance Learning Program in Islamic Banking and Finance in the French language from the platform of AlHuda CIBE”

The main purpose to launch this program is to relate the French language with Islamic economic system. This step of AlHuda CIBE will not only promote Islamic Banking and Finance on an international level but it will also make it easy for the people of the west to grab its benefits without difficulties. In other words, these tireless efforts are also serving Islam by promoting its teachings and making the Islamic banking and finance system of the world strong.

He narrated that students from more than 60 countries have so far benefited from the Distance Learning Programs of AlHuda CIBE. Islamic Banking and Finance is growing rapidly in many French-speaking countries like Senegal, Ivory Coast, Togo, Tunis, Morocco, Aljazair, Mauritius, Cameroon and also in some other countries. While, there is no facility of Islamic Banking literature, education and training in French language due to which more than 26 French speaking countries are facing problems. So, this program will appear as a pleasure & hope and will surely promote Islamic Financing in French-speaking countries.

Further, he added that it took almost two years to prepare this one year Post Graduate Diploma in French for which not only Bankers, Financial Shariah experts, legal and accounts expert services were hired but also French language experts were engaged in it to maintain its quality. Many partners of AlHuda CIBE also supports this program: Louis Silvain Belibi, General Manager of African Islamic Finance Consulting (AIFC) said that “I would like to thank AlHuda Centre of Islamic Banking and Economics for working for the first initiative towards spreading the knowledge of Islamic banking and finance and launching the Islamic Finance diploma especially for the French speaking countries”

Khadija Choujtani, PhD Scholar stated “I am really impressed and motivated to see AlHuda CIBE efforts towards development and promotion of Islamic Banking & Finance in Francophone countries and hope that AlHuda CIBE will be successful in meeting these objectives”

Mamode Raffick NABEE, Founder & Secretary of AlBarakah Ltd. said “This is a great initiative to aware & educates the people in their language and to spread the message of Islamic banking & finance more effectively. AlHuda CIBE is doing a very good job and we must also promote it. There are only fewer organizations which are providing these opportunities to young professionals that are much appreciable”
