The purpose of this study is to analyze the drivers of the Islamic banking ethical performance as measured by its compliance with the "Shariah" principles. Through a questionnaire administered to clients of Islamic banks, we measure the relative importance of the different factors impacting the Islamic banks' ethical performance. We rely on a multinomial logistics regression to assess whether of the religious factor is strongly correlated to the ethical performance.
