These products are based on the contracts and the principles of Islamic muamalat such as mudharabah, wakalah, ijarah, kafalah, musyarakah and others. The issue arises on the implementation of contract to the disabled either it is permissible according to Islamic Law or not. Hence, the objective of this article is to analyse the suitability of the principles of muamalat contracts for the disabled. Since the disabled are divided into several categories, this study will focus on the blind. Accordingly, this qualitative study has adopted document analysis and observation methods; the results of this study have found that in general, the principles of muamalat contracts in the Islamic financial system are suitable for the blind in Malaysia if it complies with the stipulations that are set by the Islamic law. The findings of this study serve as a guideline and reference to the academicians and students in the field of Islamic finance, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies that are responsible for dealing with disability issues. It is recommended that future research can focus on the other categories of disabled such as the deaf, mute, and other physical disability in understanding the issues and realities of Islamic finance in depth.
