Since its inception in 2003, 1st Ethical Charitable Trust has provided educational resources and training on Islamic Finance to Muslims based in the UK.

During the past thirteen years, these efforts have raised awareness, by working closely with hundreds of Muslim institutes, on matters such as Zakat, Islamic Wills and Sharia-Compliant University Finance. 1st Ethical also published an authoritative Islamic Finance text book which is now used by universities worldwide.

More recently, the charity is evaluating its services to the Muslim community and this website will be updated shortly to reflect these changes.
