6 Histry f Sukuk Usage f sukuk can be traced back t the 1 st Century AH during the Umayyad Caliphate under the rule f Khalifah al-marwan ibn al-hakam as recrded by Imam Malik in Al-Muwatta, Bk 31, Number و ح د ث ن ي ع ن م ال ك أ ن ه ب ل غ ه أ ن ص ك وك ا خ ر ج ت ل لن اس ف ي ز م ان م ر و ان ب ن ال ح ك م م ن ط ع ام ال ج ار ف ت ب اي ع الن اس ت ل ك الص ك وك ب ي ن ه م ق ب ل أ ن ي س ت و ف وه ا ف د خ ل ز ي د ب ن ث اب ت و ر ج ل م ن أ ص ح اب ر س ول الل ه ص ل ى الل ه ع ل ي ه و س ل م ع ل ى م ر و ان ب ن ال ح ك م ف ق ال ا أ ت ح ل ب ي ع الر ب ا ي ا م ر و ان ف ق ال أ ع وذ ب الل ه و م ا ذ اك ف ق ال ا ه ذ ه الص ك وك ت ب اي ع ه ا الن اس ث م ب اع وه ا ق ب ل أ ن ي س ت و ف وه ا ف ب ع ث م ر و ان ال ح ر س ي ت ب ع ون ه ا ي ن ز ع ون ه ا م ن أ ي د ي Yahya narrated t me frm Malik, that he had heard that receipts (sukuk) were given t peple in the time f Marwan ibn al-hakam fr the prduce f the market at al-jar. Peple bught and sld the receipts (sukuk) amng themselves befre they tk delivery f the gds. Zayd bin Thabit and ne f the Cmpanins f RasululLah (SAW) went t Marwan and said, Marwan! D yu make usury halal (permissible)? He said: I seek refuge with Allah! What is that? He said, These receipts (sukuk) which peple buy and sell befre they take delivery f the gds. Marwan therefre sent a guard t fllw them and t take them frm peple s hand and return t their wners. الن اس و ي ر د ون ه ا إ ل ى أ ه ل ه ا Example f sukuk t raise funding In 1775, the Ottman Empire issued esham t fund its budget deficit after its defeat by the Russians. The gvernment securitised the tbacc custm cllectin, in which the investrs received annuity (variable return) fr the rest f their life. The gvernment may buy back the sahim at their discretin (Ref: Prfessr Murad Cizakca 2009)

8 Sukuk Must Cmply T The Underlying Shariah Principles 1. Funds raised must be used fr Shariah cmpliant (halal) activities. 2. Fund raised may be used t finance needed tangible assets. Specificity f assets is imprtant, since Sukuk unlike cnventinal bnds cannt be used fr general financial needs f the issuer. 3. Incme received by sukukhlders (investrs) must be derived frm the cash flws generated by the underlying. 4. Sukukhlders have a right t the wnership f the underlying asset and its cash-flws. 5. Clear and transparent specificatin f rights and bligatins f all parties t the transactin, in particular the riginatr (custmer) and sukukhlders. 6. N fixity in returns.

In this case, the sukuk des nt represent wnership n the physical asset as the wnership f the asset has been transferred t the bligr, thugh in certain cases, depending n the credit strength f the bligr, assets are prvided as cllateral r security t the indebtedness. Mudharabah Returns due t the hlders as wners f capital are distributed accrding t the percentage f wnership. Lsses are brne in ttality by the sukuk hlders in accrdance t percentages f the shares wned unless the lsses are attributed t the negligence and/r wilful miscnduct f the mudharib, wh will be respnsible fr the same.
