It is also recommended that the terms and conditions of acquiring a loan be made more appealing and considerate for more investors to approach the banks for assistance as the Shariah restricts the type of businesses for which Islamic banks can provide financing. For example, they are not permitted to participate in certain prohibited investments or joint venture projects considered to be detrimental to the individual, society, or the environment.
