This concept refers to the sale of goods at a price, which includes a profit margin agreed to by both parties. The purchase and selling price, other

costs, and the profit margin must be clearly stated at the time of the sale agreement.

The bank is compensated for the time value of its money in the form of the profit margin. This is a fixed-income loan for the purchase of a real asset
(such as real estate or a vehicle), with a fixed rate of profit determined by the profit margin.

The bank is not compensated for the time value of money outside of the contracted term (i.e., the bank cannot charge additional profit on late
payments); however, the asset remains as a mortgage with the bank until the Murabaha is paid in full.

There are three parties involved to it. The seller, the buyer and the bank as an intermediary trader between the buyer and the seller. The bank
here does not purchase unless the buyer specifies his desire and a prior outstanding promise to purchase.

of the proxy.
