What are Shariah-compliant investments?

Shariah-compliant investments are governed by the tenets of Shariah and the founding principles of Islam to ensure that investment earnings are Shariah-compliant. Shariah compliance is essentially a category of socially responsible investing. First developed in the 1960s as a concept, the popularity of Islamic funds continues to rise. According to a 2011 report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), they grew at an annualized rate of 26% from 2001 to 2010.[1]

Shariah-compliant investments should not derive their income from activities that are prohibited by Islam as Haram, such as alcohol, pork-related products, pornography, gambling, usury, weapons and defense, etc.
