Islamic social finance consists of tools and institutions that could be used to alleviate poverty. This book explores the impact of COVID-19 on Islamic finance to better understand the effectiveness of Islamic social finance in helping those who have been affected by poverty overnight due to the halt in all major economic activities in the context of the pandemic. Since the struggle against poverty in each country will be different, the book attempts to shed light on the experiences of different countries by presenting successful models of Islamic social finance. The book first looks at poverty and COVID-19 before delving into the role of Islamic social financial institutions and how they have risen against COVID-19. The book concludes by examining the impact of COVID-19 on Islamic microfinance. This book is the first of its kind on the subject of COVID-19, and it intends to bridge the gap in the literature.

Islamic finance with social responsibility (IFSR) is the new theme of this book. It has been introduced to the general public and is now being promoted by the author through his own writing on Islamic Finance News. I am thankful to its chairman who encourages me to continue writing so those in power in Islamic finance institutions can benefit from my expertise and knowledge in this field. I hope some of my innovative business ideas that I promote in this book will be implemented in order to give hopes to young generation that IFSR is the new vehicle for change for the betterment of mankind in this universe. The main purpose behind introducing the new concept (IFSR) is the food crisis that hurts the poor and needy badly and has now started to adversely affect a wider segment of societies in Asia, Africa, and Middle East due to soaring food costs and the rise of inflation that may trigger civil unrest in many parts of the Muslim world (MW). The cause’s of the surge in food crisis is the massive production of biofuels, which is “a crime against humanity” according to a UN official because of its impact on global food prices that has completely ruined agriculture and will starve millions of people.
