We want to provide a more inclusive offering based on investments which are Sharia Compliant AND ethical. There is a natural overlap and synergy of Sharia and ethical principles; indeed, Imam Ghazzali, a very reputable Islamic scholar of the past, described the purpose of the Sharia as "to promote the well-being of the people, which lies in safeguarding their faith , their lives, their intellect, their posterity and their wealth. Whatever ensures the safeguarding of these five serves public interest and is desirable, and whatever hurts them is against public interest and its removal is desirable".
The company name and narrative will change so it resonates with all those who are interested in responsible and fair trade - people of all faiths and no faith. We will proactively screen and engage with providers of "Ethical investments" with a view to expanding the universe of investments available which are Sharia compliant AND ethical.
- The underlying company name will be changed from Simply Sharia Ltd to Simply Ethical Financial Services Ltd. However, the company number is still the same (07046241) - it is purely a name change
- In line with this, our name registered with the FCA will change from Simply Sharia Ltd to Simply Ethical Financial Services Ltd and our trading name with the FCA will change to Simply Ethical. Again in substance our FCA permissions will remain the same and our FCA registration number will remain the same (511220)
