ANALYZING THE PERFORMANCE OF ISLAMIC BANKING IN INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA: MAQASID INDEX APPROACH
The discourse of the presence of Maqasid Index as an alternative approach to measure the performance of Islamic banking become broadly and extensively discussed among Islamic scholars. It is because the Islamic banking has different concept than the conventional bank both in theory and practice, thus the Islamic banks should have they own benchmark to measure their performance. Therefore, Maqasid Index which more directed at the aims and objectives of sharia, become proper benchmark to measure the performance of Islamic banking.
