AbstractIn the Islamic legal system, the ways in which disputes are resolved generally fall under two categories. The first category is through litigation, namely in Islamic courts (al-qaḍāʾ or adjudication), and the second is through amicable means such as negotiation, conciliation and compromise (naṣīḥah or sincere advice), mediation (ṣulḥ), arbitration (taḥkīm), mediation along with arbitration (ṣulḥ and taḥkīm), an ombudsman (muḥtasib), expert determination (Mufti’s fatwā, pl. fatāwā), etc. These mechanisms are called alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that refers to a range of dispute resolution processes which are alternative to traditional litigation. Over time, the term ADR is now coming to mean ‘appropriate dispute resolution’ or the most appropriate resolution process in the given circumstances. One of the principal goals of ADR is to provide parties with choices for the effective and efficient resolution of disputes. The above-mentioned dispute resolution processes have different characteristics. This article will discuss only the relevant mechanisms with a view to examine how far they may be suitable to resolve Islamic banking and finance disputes effectively, cheaply and quickly.
