Meethaq is the pioneer of Islamic banking in Oman. Inspired by faith and a tradition of trust, Meethaq will help customers stay true to their values. Meethaq reaches out to customers by offering a full suite of banking products and services that comply with Sharia principles. The bank's Islamic banking operation is segregated from its conventional counterpart and led by its Sharia board, which consists of well-known Shariah scholars. Since Islam is the religion of the Sultanate of Oman as stated in the Basic Law, Oman is ideally placed to play a leading role in Islamic finance. Omani commercial codes are completely supportive to the Islamic banking structure without any conflict.
