In the present world the shifting role of Muslim women in their homes and in the working world provides a new market for financial institutions. The recent rise in the market can be attributed to the increasing role of Muslim women in the workplace.
Today, many Muslim women have significant liquid assets, partly because of Islamic inheritance law. Islamic law dictates that a married woman’s wealth is her own; spending on the household is her husband’s responsibility. Muslim women are legally entitled to inherit and bequeath property, holding their wealth in their own names even after marriage, without obligation to contribute that wealth to their husband or their family.
Today, women throughout the Muslim world play an even more active role in the financial transactions of their families.
