Types of Halal Homeownership Options

A family seeking a Murabaha mortgage

Murabaha Option (Cost Plus)

A Murabaha option (also referred to as ‘cost plus’ financing) is where JAAG buys the house and determines a purchase price at a higher rate. In practice, the amount you pay for a long-term Murabaha option ends up being almost equal to what you would pay for a traditional mortgage within the same term length. Every payment or “installment” goes directly against your principal – allowing you to join JAAG’s Rent to Home Solution comfortably. The Murabaha option is an important part of the Islamic finance industry and provides Halal homeownership options for those who wish to remain compliant with Sharia law by making a fixed monthly payment.

Musharaka Option (Sharing)

With Musharaka option, we enter into a partnership as the house owners while you gradually earn our shares in the property. You get to move in right away when the contract begins, making a Musharaka option quite similar to our standard JAAG Rent to Home agreement. You make a single fixed monthly payment.
