  • OCBC Al-Amin has one flagship Islamic Home Financing product, the Manarat Home-I package, which offers borrowers a Shariah-compliant alternative to OCBC's conventional home loan packages. Manarat Home-i gives borrowers the flexibility of choosing between fixed+floating or pure floating packages. For its floating packages, Al-Amin's interest rates are on par with that of OCBC's conventional home loans. Therefore, Islamic borrowers can be assured that they are getting a competitive home loan offer.

    The Home Manarat-i package is a semi-flexi home loan that offers lock-in flexibility. Lock-in is optional, with non-lock-in packages prices slightly higher than packages with a lock-in period. If you do not intend to refinance or sell the property within 3 years, having the lock-in period should be considered. After all, the optional lock-in period of 3 years is still relatively low when comparing across all Malaysian banks. For loans with an attached lock-in period, a 3% early settlement penalty, based on the outstanding loan amount applies when the property is sold/ refinanced within 3 years.

    OCBC holds to leading customer service practices, which emphasises quick customer response via its highly-accessible hotline, and follow-on home improvement loan offers for its home loan customers. Borrowers are entitled to borrow for home renovation works, with loan amounts up to 30% of property value, should they want to during the home loan tenure. OCBC Al-Amin's products are fully Shariah-compliant.

    Manarat Home-i is based on the concept of Musharakah Mutanaqisah (Diminishing Partnership) and Ijarah Muntahiah bi Al-Tamlik whereby the bank purchases the property from the customer and rents it back to the customer, which is subsequently sold to the customer at the end of the financing tenure at nominal value.

    Al-Amin provides a margin of financing of up to 100% and can be granted for loan tenure of up to 35 years (in accordance to the latest ruling by Bank Negara Malaysia) or 70 years of age whichever is earlier. Interest of OCBC Al-Amin home loans is calculated daily.

  • The home loan package Manarat Home-i offered by OCBC Al-Amin is compliant with Sharia principles. Depending on your individual needs you can choose a fixed or floating rate loan. The key features of Manarat Home-i are summarized below.
