Contracts notify whether the mudaraba instrument is unrestricted to specific location or type of investment or restricted. Bank can not say the enterpreneur that ” I am giving you 100.000 USD and you are going to give me 120.000 USD at the end of process” but Bank can say ” I am giving you 100.000 USD and you are going to share 20% of your profit at the end of process.” What for: Mudaraba is simply capital – labor partnership: bank puts all the money, enterpreneur puts the labor and they share the administration part.
