Lawyer Representing Muslim Business Owners
Operating a business involves a wide variety of complex tasks, and business owners will need to address multiple different types of legal issues and financial concerns.

Legal Help for Muslim-Owned Businesses
In addition to using sound business practices and meeting the legal requirements for operating a business, Muslim business owners will want to 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 need to address 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. We can also help you address contract disputes and ensure that the literal wording of your contracts is upheld.
- Employment matters – Muslim business owners will need to be sure their company policies treat all employees fairly and make accommodations that allow Muslim employees to practice their faith while 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.
Ultimately, 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.
