Standard Chartered Saadiq has hosted a global webinar titled "Lessons from 2020: An Islamic Perspective" for the first time in the country.
It is mainly focused on the unique times and Islamic living during the coronavirus pandemic, a press release said on Tuesday.
The live webcast was held across a number of Standard Chartered markets including Malaysia, UAE, Pakistan, Bahrain, and Bangladesh.
Living Islam is a platform which brings Islamic scholars and experts to talk about Islamic topics that are part of our everyday life.
Standard Chartered Saadiq has been hosting a number of local Living Islam sessions across its global footprint throughout 2020, including one in Bangladesh.
Two of Standard Chartered Saadiq's distinguished Shariah scholars-- Sheikh Nizam Yaquby (Bahrain) and Dr Aznan Hasan (Malaysia)--participated in the panel discussing how Islam provides guidance to live a peaceful and stable life despite the adverse impact of coronavirus pandemic across the world.
It also covered mental wellbeing and maintaining a balanced life guided by Islamic principles.
Head of Retail Banking of Bangladesh Sabbir Ahmed said, "Our relationships with clients will expand through initiatives like the living Islam series. We are committed to being a meaningful part of our client's lives by strengthening and expanding our Saadiq Islamic banking offerings,".
Standard Chartered Saadiq is celebrating 15 years of operation in Bangladesh in 2020. It has led the way in Islamic Banking by introducing a number of 'firsts', from introducing the first Islamic credit card in 2007 to arranging the first Sukuk transaction in the market in 2019.
