Shirkah

Shirkah

In Islamic finance, an agreement between two or more parties forming a business or other venture. There are two basic types of shirkah: mudharaba and musharika. In a mudharaba, one party contributes capital and another manages the business. In a musharika, multiple parties contribute capital. In both cases, the shirkah must comply with Islamic law.
