Values and Operational Principles

Allah said: (and say (O Muhammed PBUH) ‘’ Do deeds! Allah will see your deeds, and (so will) His Messenger\ and the believers. …..) At- Taubah 105 (The Repentance). Peace be Upon Him said: ‘’ if the final hour comes while you have a palm- cutting in your hands and it is possible to plant it before the hour comes, you should plant it. Instinctively, the human is focused on self-love and likes to be in control of everything around him/her. In the absence of religion and morals, s/he turned into a monster. So, religion and morals are the determinants of his/her behavior and attitudes. We in KIB base our value system in our Islamic religion and the morality which goes with the nature of the human being. As employees of KIB , we must understand these values and practice them in our daily duties in the bank:

Compliance and obedience Honesty Respectfulness Clarity and transparency Philanthropy Social responsibility
