When does the rental start In Askari Ijarah Bis Sayyarah?
As Ijarah, by definition, is “rental paid for the usufruct of an asset” hence, rental payment always starts with delivery of the vehicle to the user, unlike conventional lease, where lease installments start right after the payment to the vendor by the lessor.

What are the respective roles of both parties under Ijarah?
In Ijarah, as Bank is the owner of the vehicle and only transfers its usufruct to the customer, hence, customer is responsible for any risks and liabilities attached to the usage of the vehicle, while risks relating to ownership remain with the Bank throughout the Ijarah period.

Description Responsibility
Expenses related to ownership Bank
Expenses related to use of asset Client
Risk associated with ownership Bank
Risks associated with use of asset Client
Third party liability in case of accident Client
Expenses and risks associated with ownership but caused due to gross negligence Client

Is there any penalty involved if one fails to pay the rental on time?
In Ijarah, nominal additional charges are taken by the Bank due to any delay in rental installment(s) by the customer, which are used for “charity” purposes, rather than going into the income of the Bank, as it is done in the case of conventional lease This concept of charging “penalty” is approved by the contemporary Shariah Scholars to allow the Banks to safeguard themselves against the “habitual defaulters”

What if any mishap happens to the vehicle?
If the vehicle is stolen or destroyed in any mishap, unlike conventional lease, Ijarah rentals will not be charged, and security is refundable in this case However, this is subject to there being no misconduct, or negligence, on part of the client

How the client becomes owner of the vehicle?
Once the client successfully pays all Ijarah rentals, Bank gives him/her the option to become the owner of the vehicle, by purchasing it against the security already deposited with the Bank
