“Islamic banking is for all mankind and not a push for Islamic laws, the fact that you are seeing it in the media now is not because Muslims are pushing it, it is because it makes sense. 
Islamic banking is concerned about trade. They want to see the profit made from trade. In Islamic law, we talk about work and responsibility. Money cannot earn more money except you put it into work and that is investment. You have to put it in the system where people will create more jobs. It has proved itself in the 2009 market crash where Islamic banks were more profitable during an interest based crash.”
