Diff between Islamic and other banks
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
There might or might not be several other differences between the two types of banks, but the absolute major difference between an Islamic Bank and other conventional banks is that all the transactions and dealings done through an Islamic Bank are Shariah-compliant: ie. their transactions are not based on riba (interest), they do not deal and thus no income of these banks is generated from products which are declared haraam in Shariah (riba, intoxicants, gambling, prostitution, etc.).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
