Legal Help for Muslim Owned Businesses

In addition to using proper business practices and meeting the legal requirements for operating a business, Muslim business owners should build their business on the principles of the Islamic faith and the teachings of the Qur’an. Because charging or paying interest on debts is forbidden by Sharia (Islamic) law, business owners may need to make arrangements to avoid accepting loans or incurring debts. Some other issues Muslim-owned businesses may face include:

  • Business organization – Muslim business partners may be required to use the musharakah partnership structure when starting a business or establishing a formal business structure. We can help you understand your options and ensure that your company is structured according to Islamic principles.
  • Contracts – Islamic law requires contractual agreements to be clear and unambiguous. We can assist in negotiating, drafting, and reviewing contracts for your business while ensuring that they are in accordance with the principles of Sharia law, and our team can also help you address contract disputes and ensure that the literal wording of your contracts is upheld.
  • Employment matters:  Muslim business owners must ensure their company policies treat all employees fairly and make accommodations that allow Muslim employees to practice their faith while also protecting the rights of other employees and customers. We can assist in creating employment contracts and employee handbooks that abide by the precepts of Islamic law.

Sharia law requires Muslim business owners to act ethically and honestly in their business dealings with partners, customers, employees, contractors, or other companies. We can help you follow these principles while ensuring that your business engages in practices that are permitted or halal while avoiding activities that are prohibited or haram. We can act as your general counsel, helping you determine the best ways to approach legal issues or business disputes according to the principles of our faith.

I have used their services many times and have had an excellent experience every time! Danya has been a great resource for me and my business and is always timely and there to answer my questions. She is truly highly recommended!
Dema A.
Danya has been excellent to work with. I've worked with Danya on creating standardized contracts for my business as well as having her review contracts that need my signature and I need guidance on. Danya has been very responsive and has taken the time to understand what our needs are for each contract to ensure they are correct.
Rich E.
Danya was a recommendation from another friend/business owner and I am glad to have chosen her to help represent my case. She was very knowledgeable in the strategies and fact findings to be able to help build a solid case and we were able to settle my case out of court without further extension and costs.
