Purification Methodology

Wahed goes the extra mile to ensure your wealth is pure.

What is purification?

Purification is the cleansing process that requires any investment income that might have been generated from unlawful activities according to Islamic principles be given to charity.

The methodology

Wahed’s Shari’ah Board calculates the purification amounts and accrues it daily for all securities. This is calculated by considering the following :

  • The number of shares of each security
  • The net income per share for each security
  • Number of days held for each security

Wahed Invest Promotion: Reporting

Wahed provide you with a unique annual purification report that includes both the methodology used and the calculation figures.
