Al Yusr Home Finance

Home Finance you can trust

The purchase of a property is probably the largest and most important investment you`ll make. But how can you finance your dream home while still ensuring you are true to your Islamic values?

Al Yusr Home Finance has been approved by a panel of respected scholars. It is based on the Shari`a concept of Diminishing Musharakah (Musharakah Al Mutanaqisa) – a form of partnership in which one partner (the customer) promises to buy the equity share of the other partner (Al Yusr) gradually. Eventually the title to the equity is completely transferred to the customer. It is home finance you can really trust.


How does it work in?

You will form partnership with Al Yusr and we will appoint you as our agent (wakeel) to identify and purchase the property on our behalf. We will provide the larger share of the equity – for example 80% of the purchase price. You will provide the remaining 20%.

Once the property has been purchased, we will lease the property for you to use, against periodic instalments. Our equity in the property will be gradually purchased by you over the financing period and at the end of the term of contract, you will own the property completely.

Al Yusr Home Finance will be offered for all property types, including ready property, property to be built, property renovation and extensions.
