Reports that, unlike Western commercial banks, Islamic banks are prohibited by Islamic precepts to receive or pay interest, inter alia, in all their transactions. Argues that the Basle capital adequacy ratio (CAR), which was implemented in 1992 by regulatory authorities in many countries, is irrelevant to Islamic banks because it does not accommodate, among other things, one of the major instruments ‐ investment accounts ‐ through which Islamic banks mobilize funds on the basis of profit sharing. Develops four possible scenarios for the treatment of these accounts in the calculation of CAR and examines their impact on the financial and marketing strategies of Islamic banks in the light of the risk‐return relationship between the funds contributors of these banks.
