Abstract

The paper analyzes the main principles of agency under Islamic law as reflected in the Civil Code of Oman and compares them with conventional law. Upon comparative analysis, the paper concludes that the main principles of agency contract under both systems of law are very similar. Some differences do exist in the details and in the application of main principles to some specific cases. While these minor differences may be important in an actual case of agency, they do not make the Islamic law on agency dramatically different from the conventional law on the subject matter.

Keywords: Agency, Islamic Agency, Comparison between Conventional Agency and Islamic Agency
