Many Muslims want to invest in the stock markets in a professional and halal manner. However, most are not trained or educated in this field. We either end up staying away or investing in the wrong way. But investing in the stock markets can be financially rewarding if done properly.
In our modern world, the value of money keeps going down. Alhamdulillah, we do not take interest because Ribaa is a major sin. So, Muslims must invest to protect or grow their wealth.
The stock market can be a good option to invest. However, a lot of activity that goes on in the markets is akin to gambling and not permissible. This is why many people lose money as well. Alhamdulillah, Islam protects us in many ways.
If we learn how to invest properly, we too can make good profits over the long term, just like professional and institutional investors do, In sha Allah.
Everyday Muslims looking to get started with investing in the stock market. If you have been investing based on hearsay without a proper or scientific approach, then you will benefit from this class as well. Muslims who do not have a finance background will appreciate an introduction to investing finance.
I’m Faraz Omar, founder of Muslim Xchange. In the last 12 months, we helped over 100K Muslim investors check stocks for shariah compliance. I have an MBA in Finance from a reputed university, which ranks #4 in Canada and #80 in the world. Alhamdulillah, I was blessed to learn from distinguished experts in this field.
Beginning with the ‘Why’ of investing, this chapter focus on setting the right foundations that will help us plan our financial goals and become good investors.
We look into the risk of investing, the different types of investment options available, and how to manage risk. By the end of this module, you will understand the foundations of risk management and be able to build a personal risk profile.
In this chapter, we learn how to pick good businesses for investment. You will understand competitive advantages of companies and different financial metrics that reveal a lot about a company’s performance. You will learn to read the most important parts of their financial reports and calculating the fair price of a company.
As Muslims, we must learn the Islamic laws of investing and trading before we get into it. We learn the halal and haram aspects of the stock markets, and how to screen companies for Shariah compliance. Beyond the fiqh, I also cover broader Islamic ethics and values that will beautifully shape our investing psychology and behavior.
In this chapter, you will learn portfolio optimization and asset allocation strategies. I will teach how to minimize risk and maximize expected returns on your portfolio and how to allocate assets and balance your portfolio.
“Alhamdulillaah, the class was beneficial. Got to know the Islamic perspective of investing into the stock market. I highly recommended this course for Muslims who want to explore the options of investing into stock market. Great job br. Faraz!”

“I have been in the halal investing scene for a few years now and I have taken courses and participated in discussions… the most useful topics for me were calculating the fair price and optimizing my portfolio, and I found Faraz’s method easy and most logical. I highly recommend the Muslim Investor workshop, especially if you are new to the world of investing.”
