This Bank is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. It is committed to conduct all banking and investment activities on the basis of interest-free profit-loss sharing system.

National and international ratings of IBBL

IBBL’s past performances have been evaluated by Bangladesh Bank, several credit rating agencies home & abroad and by the local press.

International Press:

“In the midst of a difficult Banking system known to be plagued by high non-performing loans (NPLs), one could easily conclude that it would be difficult to find a bank that is different from norm. However, IBBL provides a refreshing change and is, thus, a pleasant surprise. Although it does not command the market share as the 4 public sector banks, IBBL, which claims to have little interference in lending from the government, has nonetheless, managed to find a niche market of its own-says the ‘BANK ATCH’ a New York based international Credit Rating Agency in its January 30, 1998 issue. “As a market leader offering banking services based on the Islamic rule of Shariah, IBBL’s profitability trend has been quite impressive. The Bank’s ability to keep its return on asset (ROA) well above the industry’s average, reflected its resilience to possible shocks in the banking system. Concerns over massive NPLs and under provisioning are common amongst local banks. But this seems well resolved in IBBL. IBBL’s good performance and solid capital base have indeed provided refreshing change found within a banking system saddled and held back by huge NPLs” the above agency continued to comment in the same issue.

National Press:

“It is one of a few local banks according to CAMEL (Capital, Assets, Management, Earnings & Liquidity) rating made by the Bangladesh Bank. It holds the highest amount of liquidity among all banks and its ability to keep return on assets at 1.07 percent is well above the banking sector’s average of 0.33 percent”- The Financial Express, Dhaka commented in its issue of May 28,1998.

“The Holiday” in its 29th August, 1997 issue carried out a report under the heading “Setting a precedence of sound banking” and commented “While the country’s banking system is burdened with bad debt portfolios and also suffers from a liquidity shortage, the Islami Bank Bangladesh Ltd. (IBBL) has created a unique precedence by improving its reserve and deposit positions substantially, making handsome profits, and offering attractive dividends to its share holders and depositors.”

IBBL‘s World rating:

As per Bankers’ Almanac (January 2001 edition) published by the Reed Business Information, Windsor Court, England, IBBL’s world Rank is 1771 among 3000 banks selected by them. This position was 1902 among 4500 selected banks as on January 1999 edition.

IBBL’s country Rank is 5 among 39 banks as per ratings made by the above Almanac on the basis of IBBL’s Financial Statements of the year 2001.

Bangladesh with its 40% people living below poverty line and 18% living in absolute poverty is suffering from acute rural-urban economic disparity coupled with illiteracy, lack of proper health and sanitation facilities. The country’s economy is basically an agrarian one with vast majority living in rural areas. The agriculture sector is unable to provide any further scope for employment resulting in influx of rural population towards urban areas. Rural areas are characterized by stagnant agriculture and scanty industries. Underemployment and unemployment is a regular phenomenon particularly in rural areas. The vast human resources have remained unutilized due to lack of education, proper training and concerted efforts to help grow the rural economy. This results in uneven distribution of income which causes serious set back in balanced geographical growth as well as growth of GDP.

Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited was founded with the major objective of establishing Islamic economy for balanced economic growth by ensuring reduction of rural-urban disparity and equitable distribution of income.

In view of the above, Branches of the Bank have been encouraged to invest their deposits in their respective areas and in particular for the economic upliftment of the rural people.

Accordingly, a Scheme in the name and style of ‘Rural Development Scheme’ has been introduced to cater to the investment needs of the agriculture and rural sector to create opportunity for generation of employment and raising income of the rural people with a view to alleviate poverty.


The main objectives of the Scheme are:

To extend investment facilities to agricultural, other farming and off-farming activities in the rural areas.

To finance self-employment and income generating activities of the rural people, particularly the rural unemployed youths and the rural poor

 To alleviate rural poverty through integrated rural development approach

 To extend investment facilities for rural housing, keeping in view the needs of housing facilities of the rural dwellers

 To provide educational services and safe drinking water, sanitation & Medicare facilities to the down trodden people


Initially the Scheme was started as a Pilot Scheme in the rural areas of certain districts under the direct supervision of the nearby Branches of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited. The Scheme is being gradually extended to all districts through different Branches of the Bank.

Target Group:

Farmers having land holding of maximum 0.50 acres

Sharecroppers with consent from the landowners

 Persons engaged in off-farm activities having no land or land up-to-maximum 0.50 acres

 Persons/farmers permanently residing in the selected villages

 Persons having derelict pond will be eligible for investment for re-excavation and fish cultivation

 Destitute women and distressed people will be provided investment for milk cows/poultry birds/ducks/goats etc. and other suitable off-farm activities for raising their supplementary income

 Persons having liabilities with other banks/institutions including defaulters will not be eligible for investment under the Scheme

Rate of Return:

Bank’s rate of return is 10% per annum (flat) with a rebate of 2.5% for timely payment.

Security Requirements:

No security is required against investment under the Scheme as entire Scheme has been drawn taking into account the social welfare objective of the Bank for upliftment of the socially down-trodden and economically backward and weaker section of the population of the society. However, Group discipline should be strictly followed and complied with so that only the right persons are selected and included as members of the Group.

Besides, each member of the Group gives personal guarantee for other members of the same Group and the members are jointly and severally liable and responsible for payment of investment.


To secure Bank’s investment, the following documents have to be executed:

 Group guarantee form.

 Deed of Agreement.

Usual charge documents

Islami Bank Training and Research Academy (IBTRA)

Development of Manpower, Research, Training and Motivation

The principles and working procedures of Islamic Banks are completely new and different from the conventional banks. There is an inevitable need for training of the employees of the banks to orient and attune them to the new system of Islami banking. To cater to this need, Islami Bank training and Research Academy (IBTRA) was established in 1984, soon after the inception of the Bank.

The activities of IBTRA covers both training and research on various aspects of Islamic banking. The Academy developed a rich library of its own with a treasure of valuable books on different subjects including Islamic economics, banking, comparative philosophies and journals of home and abroad and research articles and documents. Employees of the Bank, learners and researchers have been taking full advantage of the library.

The Academy edited books on “Readings in Islamic Banking” and “Investment Operations”. It also edited and published a brochure on “Investment and Trade Opportunities in Bangladesh.”

Keeping in view the existing and future training requirement of the Bank and also to generally cater such needs of different Islamic banking & financial institutions of the region, the management of Islami Bank Training and Research Academy has been placed at the disposal of an Academic Council consisting of 3 Directors of the Board, Management Executives of the Bank, Shariah scholar, renowned academicians and representatives of reputed institutions engaged in the training of bank officials of the country.

The Academy conducts training courses, and workshops. The courses include Islamic Banking, Banking Law and Practice, Investment Operations and Management, Foreign Trade and Foreign Exchange, Shariah Based Audit and Inspection.

Besides, orientation, induction, foundation and motivation courses on different subjects are also conducted round the year. In addition to conducting regular training courses, it arranges seminar on Islamic economics and banking and such other related topics of current interest.

Apart from this, an “Executive Development Programme” has been introduced at the Head Office of the Bank in Dhaka since 1988 for enriching knowledge and thought process and developing professional skill of the Executives. This programme has proved to be effective and now being extended outside Dhaka. The Academy conducts internship courses for the students of different Departments of various Universities of the country. The Bank introduced annual award for the best three students of the Department of Banking and Finance of Dhaka University who secure 1st class 1st, 2nd and 3rd with ‘Islami Banking’ as special subject from the year1994.

The Bank is also providing financial assistance for publication of a textbook on ‘Islamic economics and banking’ for the university students.

Besides, a motivational programme has been introduced since 1987 for the clients of the Bank. Client-orientation programme are arranged at different branches for disseminating the concept of Islamic economics and banking and to acquaint the clients with the operations of Islamic banking system.

The Bank, in 1993, co-sponsored a 3-day International Seminar on ‘Islamic Common Market’ in which scholars, economists, bankers, industrialists and representatives of trade bodies of 15 countries participated. The Bank, with the collaboration of International Association of Islamic Banks (IAIB), organised an International Seminar on Islamic Banking in1985 and another International Seminar on Islamic Banking and Insurance in 1989.

Islami Bank Training and ResearchAcademy has introduced Diploma in Islamic Banking since 1998.

Health care services:

A good number or newly graduated doctors from Medical Colleges are unemployed. Many of the medical graduates are waiting for job because the opportunity for Government service is limited. If these young doctors could be self-employed by extending investment facilities, they could make modern medical facilities available at the door-steps of rural people.
Besides, experienced and specialist physicians who are providing medicare facilities to the people in different towns with their limited and outdated medical equipment will be able to improve the standard of their techniques of treatment and also make the modern treatment facilities available to more people, if investment facilities are extended to them for procurement of modern and improved medical equipment. The constitution of Bangladesh has made it obligatory to ensure good health for all and the government is also committed to ensure good health for all by 2000 years.
In view of the above facts, Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited has taken the initiative an introduced the “Doctors Investment Scheme” to ensure modern treatment and medical facilities available to the people through extension of Bank’s investment facilities for self-employment of newly graduated doctors and at the same time extending investment facilities to the established medical practitioners to procure modern and sophisticated medical equipment


To provide investment facilities for establishment of chambers, clinics, pharmacies and procurement of medical equipment by the unemployed medical graduates and thus to provide self- employment

 To assist newly passed unemployed medical graduates to establish clinics by way of formation of groups by 5 doctors

To assist experienced and established physicians to procure improved and modern medical equipment and thus to improve the standard and techniques of treatment

 To assist specialists and consultant physicians to procure specialised medical equipment for extending improved treatment to the people

Islami Bank Hospital
With the objective of providing low-cost curative services to the less affluent segment of the society, the Foundation has so far set up Hospitals at three Divisional Headquarters in Dhaka, Rajshahi and Khulna. Services of eminent general practitioners and specialists in various fields of treatment like Medicine, Surgery, Gynae, Pediatric, E.N.T. Urology, Neuro-surgery, Skin, Orthopedic etc. are harnessed in these hospitals. Standard diagnostic, medical and surgical equipments are in used in these hospitals. The Foundation plans to establish Hospitals at each Divisional Headquarters of the country.


Educational Programs
Education is the backbone of a nation. Awareness building, skill training, access to information-all depends on education. But it is regrettable that the rate of literacy is still very low in Bangladesh. Most of the children are deprived of the light of education due to poverty, lack of sufficient educational institutions, non-availability of text books and equipments etc. In a ward, the unfavorable socio-economic conditions are responsible for this chaotic situation.

The Foundation has, therefore, taken up the following Programs to improve the country’s educational scenario:

»Support to Model Forqania Maktab
»Scholarship/lump grant for poor and Meritorious Students
»Financial support to Educational Institutions



Health and Medicare Programs
Health and Medicare facilities are the basic and fundamental rights of each individual but most of the people of our country are still deprived of it. The Foundation has, therefore, taken up the following Programs to extend health, Medicare and sanitation facilities to the urban and rural areas:
»Establishment of Medical Centers
»Supporting Charitable dispensaries
»Lump-sum help for medical treatment
»Tube well Installation
»Sanitary Latrine construction etc.


Such Assistance is also extended to the members of Rural Development Scheme (RDS) of IBBL. Under Health and Medicare Programs preventive measures have also been taken. Special steps have been taken for construction of sanitary latrines and installation of tube wells in the villages covered under to whom Islami Bank Bangladesh Ltd. is providing finance for income generation activities.
Humanitarian Help Programs
These programme aims at providing help to distressed people who are unable to meet their basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and medicine. The old widow and children without guardians get preference. Besides, the programme extends assistance to orphanages, provide fund for the marriage of poor girls, assist indebted people, help distressed wayfarers etc.
Relief and Rehabilitation Programs
Participation in relief and rehabilitation activities in natural disasters and in emergency forms an important programme of Islami Bank Foundation. During calamities like flood, tornado, tidal surge etc. the Foundation mobilizes its own people as well as donates to the relief fund opened at the government level. The Foundation also tries its best to extend hands of assistance and co-operation to the Muslim brethren elsewhere in the world.
Dawah Programs
One important objective of Islami Bank Foundation is to disseminate the true knowledge and teachings of Islam. The Foundation has, therefore, taken up various schemes to enlighten the common people as well as the elite and make them familiar with the concept of Islam. Islamic research magazines and other Islamic Literatures are being distributed among the Academicians, Journalists, Justices, Lawyers, High Officials, Bankers, Literatures and important Libraries and Institutions of the country. The Foundation is also working among the prisoners for their moral reforms.
Islami Bank Medical College, Rajshahi
The number of Doctors in Bangladesh is not sufficient compared to the total population. The Govt. Medical Colleges are also a very few and a good number of meritorious students can not get admitted into the Govt. Medical Colleges due to insufficient number of seat capacities.

Though some private medical colleges have been established mostly in and around the capital but the tution fees and other charges are so high that the students of poor and middle class families can not afford it.

Keeping in view the objective to enable the students of poor and middle class families to be a doctor, Islami Bank Foundation has established a medical college in Rajsahi, a metropolitan city of northern part of the country. In the meantime, the classes of the students of 1st 2nd and 3rd batch are going in full swing. The construction work of the hospital building at Naodapra, the own site of the college, is also going on.

Community Hospital
Besides establishing Hospitals at the Divisional Headquarters, IBF has a plan to assist local initiatives in setting up Hospitals at District level. Establishment of Four such Hospitals is planned during 1999.
Monoram: Islami Bank Crafts & Fashion
The project has been taken up as a sales outlet of home-made garments, handicrafts and other items produced by the distressed women. The main objective of the project is to create conducive and healthy atmosphere in which women can contribute to the family income by working within the limits of Shariah.
The other objective of this project is to develop designs of women-wear, which will conform, to the principles of decency and modesty as laid down by Islam and at same time compare well with the modern-day-fashions
Service Centre
To save the people of coastal and river belt from natural disaster, erosion etc. a special project has been taken in the name and style of “Service Centre”. Under this programme pucca structure constructed in coastal areas, river belts and off-shore islands would be used for integrated social development of the people as well as provide safe shelters during natural calamities. Two such Service centers (in Noakhali and Manikgonj) have already been established.
Islami Bank International School and College
As Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is turning to be a MegaCity, a large number of English Medium Schools are creeping up which follows curriculum not conforming fully to the need of the country. As an attempt to combine modern education (which are secular) with religious education for a total development of the children, Islami Bank Foundation has established an English medium ModelSchool and College in Dhaka. Establishment of a Bangla medium school affordable by lower and middle class economic strata of the society is also being envisaged.
Islami Bank Physiotherapy and Disabled Rehabilitation Centre
Bangladesh there are a great number of unfortunate disabled persons who have no other means to maintain themselves without resorting to beggary. The burden of the society might be lessened and these people can be helped to become self-reliant through imparting special skills. Keeping this in view, Islami Bank Foundation has decided to rehabilitate these unfortunate disabled persons through establishing a centre named “Islami Bank Physiotherapy and Disabled Rehabilitation Centre” This Centre while making temporary arrangement for food and shelter for the disabled, will arrange for health check up, physiotherapy and occupational therapy and look for job placement through internship in various factories and trading houses.
Bangladesh Sangskritic Kendra (Cultural Centre)
Culture is very important leading factor of a nation. A nation is considered developed which is culturally advanced. Now-a-days, no state is conquered through applying physical force but through ideas, thinking, norms, belief,etc. Like many other Muslim countries, the elite, affluent section and new generation of Bangladesh are presently motivated by western culture which is very harmful for the nation. Islami Bank Foundation has, therefore, established “ Bangladesh Sangskritic Kendra ( Cultural Centre ) in Dhaka for upholding and promoting national culture and heritage of the country.

Islami Bank Foundation, through it’s various welfare activities, has been working to serve the destitute and distressed people as well as for the socio-economic development of the country.

Islami Bank Foundation wants to expand the on-going projects throughout the country and also wishes to undertake new ones for the overall development of the country. The Foundation is looking forward for sincere assistance and co-operation from philanthropic persons and institutions from home and abroad to materialize its noble and cherished objectives. Zakat and Donations may be credited to Islami Bank Foundation Account Nos. 02101005 (Zakat) and 02101014 (Donation) maintained with lslami Bank Bangladesh Ltd., Head Office Complex Branch, 40, Dilkisha Commercial Area, Dhaka-1000, Bangladesh.

Islami Bank Institute of Technology
The large number of unemployed youth of the country may be turned as assets through taking up Human Resource Development (HRD) Programme.


The youths with skills in various sectors of technology may become self-employed in the land and can also get employment opportunities abroad. Islami Bank Foundation has, therefore, established 3 Technical Institutes, two in Dhaka and another in Bogra, which are rendering training facilities in Computer, Secretarial Science, Driving, Electrical, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Radio & TV, Tailoring and Garments etc.

Centre for Development Dialogue
Alongside with the governmental efforts at National level and multilateral and bi-lateral institutions at the international level, Non Govt. Organizations (NGOs) in different parts of the world especially in the developing countries are playing increasing role in experimentation with Development models.

Most of the organizations unfortunately, try with development techniques from a standpoint, which often turn antagonistic to the belief and social norms of the people. The renowned foreign and national NGOs have their established training centre(s) where they train their own people and also rent out the facilities to others. Islami Bank Foundation has decided to establish a training centre of its own named ” Centre for Development Dialogue” which will create opportunity for imparting training facilities for its own staff members as well as the staff members of other development organizations.
