Quo Vadis, Islamic Banking? Literature Study on Islamic Commercial Banks and Sharia Business Units in Indonesia

Tita Djuitaningsih


This paper aims to describe the condition of the financing portfolio in Islamic banking that is not following its characteristics, namely profit sharing; identify the cause and contribute to the solution of the problem. The dominance of murabahah financing is shown in proportion to the position on January 31, 2017, which reached 60% of total financing. The macro impact of the domination of murabahah transactions is that the monetary sector moves faster than the real sector which can ultimately lead to an economic crisis. Micro-impact, murabahah financing tends to encourage individual society to be consumptive because the purpose of this financing is more for consumptive matters, while profit-based financing will encourage individuals to be productive because profit-based financing is definitely intended to finance productive things. Broadly speaking, the problem needs to be addressed through two things. The first solution comes from the Government in the form of the availability of supporting institutions and regulations that are conducive to increasing the portfolio of profit-based financing. The second solution is sourced from Islamic banking itself in the form of an increase in the quantity and quality of Islamic human resources in the form of massive but highly selective recruitment and providing training to increase understanding of the concept of Islamic sharia and sharia banking practices in a professional manner.
