DSN-MUI is in charge to issue fatwa on Islamic finance and oversee its implementation with the intention of Islamic financial advancement in Indonesia.

DSN-MUI has presently produced 141 fatwas that include banking and non-banking aspects, capital market, and general contracts in Islamic financial law. To supervise its enforcement
