The Dallah Al-Baraka Seminar Endowment

This time last year, after Asharq Al-Awsat Riyadh attended the thirtieth Dallah al-Baraka Seminar on Islamic Finance, he wrote an article suggesting that Sheikh Saleh Kamel should establish an Islamic endowment for this seminar in order to ensure it continues after his passing because this forum no longer belongs just to Dallah al-Baraka or Sheikh Saleh Kamel but rather to the Muslim ummah as a whole. This seminar has become, through its research, decisions and fatwas, the primary reference for the Islamic ummah, with regards to the jurisprudence of Islamic financial transactions which the Muslim ummah suffers a lack of, whether this is with regards to experts in jurisprudence, scholarly references, or research centers.
