21.Do the Asset Indexed Tokens structured by GTP comply with Islamic-Halal criteria?
The structure our model, which includes murabaha purchase-sale, mudaraba, and ijara lease to back asset-indexed tokens, is designed to comply with Islamic finance and halal criteria. This model how it works:
Murabaha Purchase-Sale: In Islamic finance, murabaha is a cost-plus financing method. It involves the sale of goods at a price, which includes a profit margin agreed upon by both parties. In the context of asset-backed tokens, this means that an asset (e.g., real estate, machinery, or commodities) is purchased using a murabaha arrangement. The selling price includes the cost of the asset plus an agreed-upon profit.
Mudaraba: Mudaraba is a form of partnership in Islamic finance. In this context, it would imply that the investors (rab ul mal) provide the capital for the asset purchase through the murabaha arrangement. The entrepreneur or investment manager (mudarib) manages the investment and aims to generate returns. Profits are shared according to a pre-defined profit-sharing ratio while losses are borne by the investors.
Ijara Lease: Ijara is an Islamic leasing arrangement. After acquiring the asset through murabaha, it is leased out to generate rental income. The rental income is distributed among the investors in the mudaraba partnership based on the profit-sharing ratio.
Asset-Indexed Tokens: The income generated from the lease of the asset is used to back the asset-indexed tokens. These tokens represent ownership or a share in the underlying asset. Token holders receive dividends or returns based on the performance of the asset, and these dividends are distributed in compliance with Islamic finance principles.
Compliance with Islamic Finance and Halal Criteria:
No Interest (Riba): The structure avoids the payment or receipt of interest (riba), which is prohibited in Islamic finance.
Asset-Backed: The tokens are backed by real, tangible assets (e.g., real estate, machinery, or commodities) that have intrinsic value. This is in line with the Islamic principle that investments should be tied to real assets.
Profit-and-Loss Sharing: The use of mudaraba means that profits and losses are shared between the investors and the entrepreneur, aligning with Islamic finance’s risk-sharing principle.
Asset Utilization: The use of ijara ensures that the assets are put to productive use, generating rental income, and complying with Islamic finance principles.
