Al-Shura or consultation is an instrument for reconstruction and reform, mentioned in the Qur’an and suggested in the practices of the Prophet and his Companions Muhammad (PBUH) Generally, it is a tool used by Muslim scholars and rulers or caliphs in arriving a decision or ruling on particular matters or issues relating to the affairs of Muslims. However, there is a little discussion on the applicability of shura in business matters. In developing the framework of shariah corporation, there are few aspects that need to be scrutinized such as legal personality, principle of limited liability, registration of a company and the like.
