Foreign Currency Saving Account

An account that provides greater returns on your investments and is a suitable solution for individuals as well as business entities that are looking for competitive returns on their savings based on Islamic Financing principles.

Opened on the basis of ‘Mudarabah’, where Barkat Islamic Banking is the ‘Mudarib’ (manager of the funds) and you, the customer are the ‘Rabb-ul-Maal’ (owner of funds). These deposits are deployed in Shariah compliant modes such as Ijarah, Murabaha and Musharakah. The rate of profit on your deposit will be determined through a Shariah approved mechanism for calculation of weightages which will be announced at the beginning of each calendar month and shall be applicable for that month only. Barkat Islamic Foreign Currency Saving deposits will share in the profit earned by the Islamic Banking Branches of Faysal Bank. Losses, if any, will be shared in the proportion of investment by each depositor. Monthly weightages for profit distribution shall be calculated and displayed at all Barkat Islamic Banking branches as well as our website
