    Okay thanks for the info. I am going to ask a question to non-muslims, but hope i dont get any racist comments back. Would non-muslims be interested in studying islamic banking/finance?
    Yep, me. I plan to take an MSc in the subject.

    Looks interesting. I might go for the conventional finance master and study professional qualifications separate.

    so lets implement christian finance then? sikh finance? hindu finance? jewish finance?
    I think its stupid. Jus watch in a few years it will be known as Aston Islamic University.

    Also let us discuss islamic finance.

    habib bank- islamic bank yeah. In Islam its wrong to charge interest. So you borrow money from this bank they dont charge you interest they charge you a 'borrowing fee'. How is a 'borrowing fee' not INTEREST??!
    Yes that is interest. Since you are paying extra due to borrowing. People try to sly away and call it something else but ultimately it is interest.

    Yeah if there is enough hype then sure open Christian finance and Jewish finance too! I guess because there are so many Muslims this course would be very popular.

    Disagree.
    Halal food is off putting to many non-muslims because of the way it is killed, so it does make a difference.
    Oh, didn't know some non-Muslims were put off by it
    I guess they did it because majority in the university who would take the course are muslims in the first place?

    Anyway, I'm going to stick with good old science

    Simple, people respond to incentives. A £1.5m grant is a big incentive to start an Islamic finance course, so Aston do it. No surprises there.
    My school became a 'specialist technology college' and forced everyone to do a technology for GCSE for a similar reason.

    Beacuse its fixed, in a economically downturn banks can not suddenly charge me high intrestest on my mortage. Why do you think Saudi arabia is 'recession proof':

    (This is just an example, no disrespect intended)

    (Instert name of country)+recession on google

    United Kingdom:
    First results:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7846266.stm

    Saudi arabia
    First result:http://www.ameinfo.com/176921.html
    Banks don't suddenly charge high interest on your mortgage in a recession, if anything the interest will fall due to a fall in base rates...
    Your Google method is really not a good method of try to prove anything. And I wouldn't say Saudi Arabia is 'recession proof'. I wouldn't say any country is.

    Yes, I would certainly be interesting in looking at the principles of it, and comparing it to those of traditional banking and finance. But no I wouldn't be interested in studying it, primarily because I'm not religious, and wouldn't want religion to 'interfere' with what I'm studying. For example I wouldn't want to be given a reason like 'because Allah wouldn't approve' (silly example) for something like not charging interest.
