The UBL UK Islamic Accounts are interest free. All money deposited will be maintained and invested in accordance with Shariah rules and requirements. Profits will be distributed to the holders of Islamic Savings Accounts and Term Deposit Accounts in accordance with the guidance of the Bank’s Shariah Advisor.

We (UBL UK and the Depositor) both recognize and agree that the payment and/or receipt of interest are against Shariah principles and consequently this agreement does not involve the payment or receipt of interest. We (UBL UK and the Depositor) both agree with each other that neither of us will in any proceedings against the other, claim interest from the other and we both expressly waive and reject any entitlement to recover interest from the other.

Our all Islamic savings accounts are based on the Islamic financial principle of Murdaraba

  • A partnership in which one party provides the capital and the other provides the expertise.
  • The capital provider is called the ‘Rabb-al mal’ and the expert is called the ‘Mudarib’.
  • The Mudarib invests the Rabb-al mal’s money to generate profit, which is not guaranteed.
  • The actual profit generated by the Murdarib is shared between both parties according to a pre-agreed ratio.
  • Any loss in the capital is borne by the Rabb-al-mal, except when there is any proven negligence, fraud, and breaching of the agreed terms and conditions by Mudarib.
  • It is a Shari’ah requirement that the mechanism for distributing profit must be clearly defined in a way that eliminates uncertainty and any possibility of dispute.

This account can be held in single or joint names.

Profit will be paid using the Gross Rate and tax will not be deducted where your profit is exempt.

Gross rate means we won’t deduct tax from the profit we pay on money in your account. It’s your responsibility to pay any tax you may owe to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the profit rate would be if profit was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product which quotes profit rate will include an AER, it makes it easier for you to compare what return you can expect from your savings over time.
