It is therefore a matter of a concern that even after four decades after Islamic finance captured the attention of investors around the globe, these two purest genres account only for a small percentage of Islamic financial industry. The paper examines more searchingly for the reasons why mushārakah and mudārabah occupy such insignificant place among Islamic financial products. This paper offers an analytical insight.
