Making money, wealth & personal finance accessible to Muslims
We do this for one reason: to make our community better-off. We want to take Muslims from being among the poorest in society to the wealthiest.
IFG was started by Ibrahim and Mohsin back in 2015 as a humble blog alongside our corporate careers.
We ran it as a community service for 4 years. We're in that odd (and geeky) group of people who get very passionate researching and writing about investments and personal finance. We still got married though, so no long-term harm done.
Ibrahim finished off his alim course in 2018 and we both qualified as solicitors in 2019 and decided to see if we could make IFG more sustainable.
Alhamdulilah the whole thing snowballed and in late 2019 we quit our corporate careers, convinced our wives that working on a startup was a great move and dove in.
Our mission is the same it has been from the start. We want to help the Muslim community across the world get back to a level financial playing field. We've alhamdulilah come a fair way:
