The Islamic Accounting and Muamalat research group had a fruitful discussion with one of the guest speakers of the World Universities 1st Zakat Conference which was just recently held in Kuala Lumpur.
The speaker, Dr Malik Al Asmar (in brown suit)from Belgium visited the Accounting Research Institute this morning to discuss on possible international collaboration in zakat research and Islamic microfinancing. Both topics are in line with ARI's 2012 research program in Islamic Accounting and Muamalat. Dr Malik has agreed in principle to participate with ARI for both projects. A phd student from Iran, Mr Syed (in brown shirt)has recently enrolled with ARI to embark on a study related to Islamic Microfinancing.
