The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between customer satisfaction and six dimensions of service quality (CARTER model) in Islamic banks of Pakistan, the UK and UAE.
This study uses a sample of 225 customers of Islamic banks; 75 responses have been taken from each country. Structured questionnaire technique has been used to collect data.
The paper's findings reveal that Pakistani and UK Islamic banking customers consider assurance, reliability and empathy as significant factors for customer satisfaction, whereas UAE customers consider assurance and tangible as significant dimensions of satisfaction.
The study's limitation relates to the sample size of the respondents.
This study is significantly important for the academic point of view, as well as for the practitioners, managers and policy makers to find out the pattern of customer satisfaction in terms of service quality for Islamic banks.
The current study is of particular value because it is a comparative study of customer satisfaction and service quality dimensions (CARTER model) of Islamic banks in Pakistan, UK, and UAE.
