Agency contract under conventional law and Islamic law as manifested in the civil code of Oman: a comparative analysis


Billah, Muhammad Masum (2016). Agency contract under conventional law and Islamic law as manifested in the civil code of Oman: a comparative analysis. Electronic Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law (EJIMEL), 4:109-126.

Abstract

The paper analyzes the main principles of agency under Islamic law as reflected in the Civil Code of Oman and compares them with conventional law. Upon comparative analysis, the paper concludes that the main principles of agency contract under both systems of law are very similar. Some differences do exist in the details and in the application of main principles to some specific cases. While these minor differences may be important in an actual case of agency, they do not make the Islamic law on agency dramatically different from the conventional law on the subject matter.
