Ijarah is a contract whereby the owner of an asset, other than consumables, transfers its usufruct (benefits) to another person for an agreed period for an agreed consideration. In Ijarah/leasing, the corpus of leased commodity remains in the ownership of the lessor (Bank) and only its usufruct (benefits) is transferred to the lessee (customer). Anything which cannot be used without consuming the same cannot be leased out like money, edibles, fuel, etc. During the entire term of the ijarah, Bank being the owner of the assets retains the title of ownership and also bears all risks and rewards pertaining to ownership. All the risks related to usage of the assets are borne by the lessee (customer). Ijarah facility can be availed for financing of plant, machinery, buildings and all the other fixed assets.
Diminishing Musharaka (DM) is commonly used for financing the fixed assets. It is a form of co-ownership in which two or more persons share the ownership of a tangible asset in an agreed proportion and one of the co-owners undertakes to buy in periodic installments the proportionate share of the other co-owner until the title to such tangible asset is completely transferred to the purchasing co-owner. Diminishing Musharaka can be created only in tangible assets. It shall be limited to the specified Asset(s) and not to the whole enterprise or business. In Diminishing Musharaka incidental expenses related to ownership may be borne jointly by the co-owners in the proportion of their co-ownership. Loss, if any, shall be borne by the co-owners in the proportion of their respective investments. The amount of periodic payment would go on decreasing with purchase of ownership units by the purchasing co-owner.
