What is MURABAHA?

An Islamic financial transaction. Having property or an asset to sell, the owner will rent or lease it at a fully disclosed rate of profit to an interested buyer. Just like a rent-to-own situation, until the buyer has paid off the note for the asset in full, the owner retains full ownership rights over the asset.
