We have been clients of Ijara CDC since 2013. From the start, this company worked for our benefit financially and spiritually too! Unlike other Islamic mortgage companies, the consultants and owners were always happy to answer every skeptical question we had. One of the best things is that they won't just approve a mortgage without really examining financial circumstances and giving us a reality check. They always made sure that we understood our financial limitations and didn't get ourselves into a bind that would cause difficulties in the long run. This transparency, over time, has paid off.
Very recently, COVID-19 impacted my husband's job. All it took was one phone call, and by the end of the day, I got an email stating that we could take 3-month break-no penalties, no strings attached. When we needed them most, they stood by us and made things easier for us as a family.
I couldn't recommend this company enough. It is a small business that cares about its clients. We plan to continue financing through them for many years to come, and we hope many others do the same.

I would like to say “THANK YOU” to the Ijara team, Gladdi and Sofie for their wonderful support and help throughout this journey of making a dream come true in purchasing my condo. Thank you for your amazing work.
I had the pleasure of working with Ijara to get an Islamic loan for an investment property and I can't be more thankful for all the efforts they made for me . They went to great lengths to run everything smoothly with the lender who was asking for so many documents. Gladdi was really patient and understanding throughout the whole process. I am really happy that you provided me with the opportunity for a Halal investment, I wouldn't have been able to do it without your help.
My dad was asking me why I went with Ijara vs. Guidance or UIF and I told him the ability to talk to people that understand the business and not just the process was important. If you remember, we started off contemplating buying a home with land and renovating/replacing the original structure. The other two companies didn’t get it, and my conversation with you was consistent with every time we’ve spoken. You know the business and understand inside and out and that’s extremely important, at least to me.
