Sharī’ah governance is an additional layer of governance within the internal structure of corporate governance in Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) and serves as an important mechanism for addressing Sharī’ah non-compliance risk, a specific type of risk exclusive to IFIs. This chapter examines Sharī’ah governance practices in thirty-five IFIs in Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. More specifically, it considers the banks’ internal arrangements for Sharī’ah governance, disputes procedures and the legal authority of Sharī’ah boards, their work and operational procedures, and their competence, confidentiality and independence. The chapter highlights serious deficiencies in Sharī’ah governance, which are worse in the United Kingdom and the GCC than in Malaysia.
