In that case, it is essential to find an answer; How a valuable and impactful platform can be designed which can add knowledge to individuals, bankers, and society? Realizing the challenge of fragmented information and disconnected issues in Islamic finance sector, this research attempt to propose a digital solution (Riba Information Queries- ‘Riba IQ’ portal) which can assist Islamic Bankers, Islamic Finance Education providers, Shariah Scholars, Students and Researchers in gathering information and conducting more useful and productive research.
