Product & Technical

Is it permissible for an Islamic bank to impose penalty for late payment?
In Islamic law it is permissible for customer to undertake that in case of wilful delay of its outstanding dues, he will be responsible to pay charity to the bank upon demand. The penalty proceeds received by financial institution would be channelized for charitable purposes as this amount cannot become source of income for the financial institution in any manner. This mechanism would also help in maintaining a credit discipline in the institution and act as a deterrent against debts becoming bad or unrealizable.
