The discussants said helping hands should be extended to distressed people side by side with giving priority to agriculture, health, SME, etc. in Islamic banking. Particularly time-befitting research of Islamic banking and finance should make the best use of the sectors like cash Waqf (endowment) and Sadaqa-e-Jariah' (constant donation). Otherwise, the objectives of Shariah can not be achieved. Affluent people will have to take up real steps to face the post-COVID-19 situation. They also called to participate in Sadaqa-e-Jariah through providing Central Shariah Board with cash Waqf and one-time donations to carry out various programs of acquiring knowledge including Shariah research and human resource development.
