Welcome to a groundbreaking journey into the realm of Shariah Audit for Islamic Financial Institutions. This course is designed to arm you with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in the dynamic field of Shariah auditing, a critical pillar of the Islamic finance industry.

This course offers a deep dive into the principles and practices of both internal and external Shariah auditing. You will learn about the role and types of auditing, audit evidence and investigation, and various audit procedures, alongside understanding the crucial aspects of audit planning and strategy.
