NOIDA, India ( December 7, 2012 - Islamic banking is a growing sector in the Saudi Arabia banking industry. It is a system of banking, consistent with the principles of Islamic law (Shari'ah). It prohibits usury, the collection and payment of interest and trading in financial risk. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest player in terms of pool of funds in the global Islamic finance market. Saudi Arabia emerged as the largest market for Islamic banking in the GCC, with a total asset of full-fledged Islamic banks accounting for approximately 27.4% of the region's total Islamic banking.

Sukuk (Islamic bonds) are gaining popularity in Saudi Arabia due to their risk-free nature and are expected to boom further in the years to come. Even in recessionary times, Sukuk provided stability to Saudi banking industry.
