The electronic application implements the required contracts that are necessary to make the processes fully shariah-compliant, the application execute a punch of contracts that approved by sharia such as agency (Wakalah) and sales (Murabaha), using a couple of tools also approved by sharia such as constructive possession, moreover there is a certain permissibility in debt particularly to debtor that there is allowance to deduct part of agreed profit this mean if a client accelerates payment of one or more instalments prior to the date specified for such payment, the Islamic bank may deduct part of the profit agreed upon between the Islamic bank and the client at the time of settlement this permissibility approved by AAIOFI standard.
