Southeast Bank PLC. and Mastercard introduced the Tijarah Islamic Mastercard World Credit Card within Southeast Bank’s Tijarah Islamic Banking segment. This innovative financial product caters to customers’ diverse financial requirements while adhering to Shariah-compliant principles.

With this exclusive Islamic Credit Card, the cardholders will enjoy services that align with their religious beliefs and principles. Notably, cardholders will not be charged any interest fees, instead, there will be a modest tiered structure with allowable customer tolerance, wherein a Monthly Maintenance Fee (MMF) is applied to any outstanding balance in the card account after the payment due date. However, the MMF is solely applied to the actual card transaction amount and not applicable to any other service fees such as ATM, Retail, POS, E-commerce, Wallet fund transfer, Card Cheque, or fund transfer transactions.

Besides, a cardholder will be able to earn 1 Mukafa (Member Reward Point) for every 50 BDT transaction. The total Mukafa accumulated by all the cardholders will be redeemed in a calendar year at the rate of MRP 4 equivalent to 1 BDT. The redeemed amount will be donated among the unprivileged people as Zakat or Sadakah, and a certificate to an individual cardholder of his contribution.

Cardholders will enjoy access to both domestic and international lounges using this credit card. Those traveling abroad will also have the privilege to access over 1,100 airport lounges worldwide through Mastercard’s LoungeKey program. Additionally, cardholders will get discounts on lifestyle, dining, hotels, and resorts and Mastercard’s extensive network of 7000+ merchant partners across the country.
