- He supports the spread of Sharia world wide, and is the most worlds' most powerful Islamist banker.
- He does not overtly fund jihad, but as a supporter of Sharia, he has been instrumental in building an Islamic global financial structure, which enables Jihadsts to move outside Western Finanacial structures more and more often.
- He was the first proponent and catalyst behind the emerging Certified Islamic Public Accountant credential.
- When effective Generally Acceptable Accounting Pracitices (GAAP) are established for the CIPA, a new and separate finanacial accountability standard will be established.
This new Sharia standard will institutionalize a sharia tax called Zakat tax. Zakat is an admirable benevolence system that uses the tax for a number of good purposes. Unfortunately, it also can provide for funding Jihad. The giver can be separated from the receiver making the use of the tax less than trasparent.
The Zakat is collected, and Islamic banks have accounts set up for the collectors of Zakat. Some accounts are co-mingled, or dedicated to Jihad, like Account 98.
Therefore, if an Islamic Student group in the US collects donations to support Tsunami Victims in Indonesia, when the funds arrive in country it is perfectly ethical under Islamic Law and tradition to use the funds to equip and Pay Jihadists defneding of expanding the Ummah.
