Summary

Awqaf can be used not only to provide immediate necessities to the poor, but also to create or strengthen business support institutions that can lower the cost of doing business for the poor. Awqaf can also be used to support and build infrastructure institutions that can improve corporate governance and reduce the cost of doing business. For example, information bureaus, market regulatory bodies, the provision of accountancy services, and other such shared services for a group or for the entire society can be funded through waqf.  Thus, this paper focuses on the application of these concepts and some possible roles that waqf may play in the socio-economic development of the Muslim societies.

    Guided by the Sharia laws Islamic banking is grounded on the laws on the belief that all types of interest is forbidden. Investing in businesses that deal in business of pork or alcohol or those that lead to gossip such as media or are against Islamic values such as pornography is completely prohibited. Speculative transactions are also banned in this law. Because of a different way of running their financial system the regular banking financial instruments cannot be used in Islamic banking. 
    However, the banking and finance in Islam do have the same motive as the conventional banking which is to generate money for the banking organisation which is by lending capital while also keeping within the boundaries outlined by the Islamic law. 
    Instead of the basic principle which the conventional banks use that is 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 the exact interpretation of Sharia laws.

    You have a great idea, now what?  
    That first mile -- where an innovation moves from an idea on paper to the market -- is often plagued by failure. In fact, less than one percent of ideas launched by big companies end up having real impact. The ideas aren't the problem. It's the process.  
    The First Mile focuses on the critical moment when an innovator moves from planning to reality. It is a perilous place where hidden traps snare entrepreneurs and roadblocks slow innovators inside large companies.  
    In this practical and enlightening manual, strategic adviser Scott Anthony equips innovators with new tools, questions, and examples to speed through this crucial early stage of innovation. You'll learn:  
    How to evaluate your idea's strengths and weaknesses using the "DEFT" process: Document, Evaluate, Focus, and Test Fourteen recipes from an "experiment cookbook" to gain confidence in your idea or business Why "spinouts," "wrong turns," and other challenges commonly trip up innovation -- and the practical strategies you can use to avoid them Why innovators need to seek chaos in an age of constant change -- and other essential leadership skills  
    Drawing on his decade of experience as an innovation adviser and investor, Anthony describes hard-won lessons from disruptive start-ups and global giants alike. The First Mile will give you the knowledge and confidence to travel this perilous -- but ultimately promising -- terrain.  
    The first mile can be a scary place, but you don't have to traverse it alone. This book can help.

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb is a Lebanese born American literateur, scholar, essayist, trade-cum-risk analyst, statistician and so on. His multi-faceted talent and the ability to wander freely amongst diverse faculty of subjects have made him a force to reckon with in the gamut of global intellectual society. Most of Taleb's works are related to the dilemma of volatility, probability and uncertainty. 
    Nicholas Taleb was born in Amioun (Lebanon) in the year 1960. He is an author of international fame and has served as an academician in several universities and is currently positioned as a distinguished professor of Risk Engineering at the New York University (Tandon School of Engineering). 
    He has authored so many books to devour. The Black Swan, Antifragile, Skin in the Game, Fooled by Randomness, The Bed of Procrustes, Dynamic Hedging to name a few (combinedly called Incerto) are termed as Taleb’s most outstanding creations in the contemporary literary world. 
    Nassim Nicholas Taleb has had devoted a good 21 years as a risk-taker (quantitative trader) before becoming a wanderer and researcher in spheres of mathematics, philosophy and largely potential problems with chance and probability. Over and above being impressed as a trader, Taleb has also written over 50 academic articles in multiple subjects as a sequel to Incerto. The topics covered are from physics, philosophy, statistics, economics, ethics, quantitative finance and international affairs. The central idea in all these creations has centered on the notion of risk and probability with an undercurrent of randomness.
