Guided by the Sharia laws, Islamic banking is grounded on the belief that all types of interest are forbidden. Investing in businesses that deal in arenas against Islamic values - such as pork, alcohol, pornography, or ones that lead to gossip such as media - is completely prohibited. Speculative transactions are also banned by Sharia law. Because of these differences, regular banking financial instruments cannot be used in Islamic finance.However, banking and finance under Islam have the same motives as conventional banking - to generate money for the banking organization by lending capital. Islamic finance focuses on keeping conventional banking within the boundaries outlined by Islamic law. As opposed to the basic principle of conventional banks of ´´transfer of risk´´, the Islamic banks follow the principle of risk-sharing.The laws of Sharia vary from country to country. While in some countries they are liberal, in other places they follow more exact interpretations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth - in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl - you would think I´d hit rock bottom. Wrong. Let´s back this up a sec.... Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger´s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend...until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was ´´stepmom´´ material. AKA, not me, apparently. The problem? I´m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We´re still friends, after all, and friends don´t let friends fake it alone. Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws´ house, or in a hotel room where we´re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed. I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive redhead. So what if she´s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I´ve ever known? I don´t want to fall in love. I really don´t. The whole ´´pretend girlfriend´´ thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time. But when it comes to Laura? Hell, maybe I´m just not cut out for faking it. 1. Language: English.
