Islami Bank Bangladesh Wednesday organised a programme of prayer to mark its 38th founding anniversary in the capital.
Professor Md Nazmul Hassan, chairman of the bank, addressed the function on a virtual platform as the chief guest.
Presided over by Mohammed Monirul Moula, managing director and chief executive officer of the bank, the programme was attended by additional managing directors Muhammad Qaisar Ali and Md Omar Faruk Khan.
Deputy managing directors Abu Reza Md Yeahia, Taher Ahmad Chowdhury, AAM Habibur Rahman and Md Mosharraf Hossain also joined the programme.
Prayers were offered for the overall progress of the bank, the well-being of all the directors, executives, officers, employees, clients, and well-wishers and the safety of the people amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Professor Nazmul Hassan said Islami Bank was established with the motto of conducting Shariah-based banking.
“A large segment of clients in the banking sector are out of Islamic banking services; we have to address them. Islami Bank has been able to come to its present position with honesty, sincerity and devotion of its officers and employees and the support of the people,” Nazmul said.
“The bank has been playing an important role in alleviating poverty by conducting asset-based and welfare-oriented investment activities along with creating large industrial groups.”
Munirul Moula said Islamic banking is a successful reality now in Bangladesh. “Islami Bank has become the top bank in the country in all activities including import, export and remittance services.”
