Muslim Arbitrators are needed to settle the dispute in Islamic Finance. The process Model in Shariah Arbitration may differ from the tahkim and conventional arbitration which is based totally on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Model and Rules. However, to be in line with internationality of the principles enunciated in UNCITRAL, there is no requirement under the it stating that an arbitrator should not be or must be a Muslim .

The paper ends with conclusion and some recommendations for future embarcation on the issue.
