Is the guidance of your Sharia Supervisory Committee compromised by them being paid?

Sharia Scholars are appointed by the shareholders of an Islamic bank as an independent committee. Their role is to ensure that the bank carries out all of its transactions in compliance with Sharia requirements.

They are required to audit the bank's work from a Sharia point of view and review the bank's products. In return for the Scholars' time and effort they are entitled to remuneration. This is no different than for any other trained professional, such as a solicitor or an accountant, who carries out work for an organisation.
