Shariah law has been known to affect many areas of governance in several regions throughout the Middle East, including civil and commercial law. Its teachings are derived from the Quran and the Hadith.There are three main differences in the commercial sector that separate Islamic finances from other countries, according to Shariah law, and presently, less than 1 percent of international financial assets are Shariah compliant. The three principal that differentiate Islamic finances are the prohibition of interest, the sharing of profits and losses and a prohibition against uncertainty and excessive speculation.
