Main Article Content
Many factors prevent Muslims from accessing Islamic banking or banking that adheres to Qur'anic principles including a lack of university research, support from Islamic organizations and public knowledge of the practice. One of these factors is the fact that most people are not aware of Islamic banking, which prevents them from seeking out this financial institution. Moreover, most people have no knowledge of sharia law also known as Islamic finance although it is practiced by many banks around the world. This study explores public opinion about the existence of Islamic banks in Indonesia and their investment choices. It also investigates future investment prospects and Islamic banking products. This study uses qualitative data analysis methods derived through inductive and deductive methods. Furthermore, participants were found to have substantial knowledge about Islamic banks in Makassar. People are attracted to Islamic banks because they are implemented according to sharia principles. Many respondents stated that one of the reasons they like Islamic banking is because it is safer and more secure. Other reasons include avoiding usury and feeling proud to be a Muslim which some consider an advantage from an Islamic perspective.
