Current Account for business

Our Current Account lets you conduct your day-to-day finances in line with your beliefs.

We use the Islamic principle of Qard for our current accounts. A Qard is a loan, free of any benefit. In essence, it means that your current account is a loan to the bank, which is used by the bank for investment and other purposes. Obviously it has to be paid back to you, in full, on demand.

It allows you the peace of mind of depositing your money in a bank, with the additional reassurance that Al Rayan Bank is not investing your money in activities that contravene Sharia principles.
