Islamic Finance Guru (IFG) is a hub that helps Muslims (and non-Muslims!) with their investment, personal finance and entrepreneurial journeys.

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 richest. We think that this is the most effective way to deal with problems like discrimination, under-representation and poverty.

Our articles equip Muslims to do just that. Our authors are experts in their field and always neutral. We aim to bridge the gap between classical Islamic scholarship and modern-day commercial awareness when tackling all the knotty Islamic finance problems of today.

Our courses go further than that – rather than just inform, they educate and empower. So that our audience can do investment, personal finance and entrepreneurship, rather than just know it.
