The functioning of the banking system, in every country is essential, because it affects the economic development. Banking sector functioning in Poland should be considered stable, because it is supervised by the Financial Supervision Commission and the safety of deposits is ensured by the Bank Guarantee Fund. The lack of these institutions could lead to actions contrary to the principles of the broadly understood banking law. Poverty is a common phenomenon all over the world, including Islamic countries. In order to avoid its spread and limit financial exclusion, Islamic microfinance entities were created. But what is their mode of operation? The principles of operation of these entities have their basis in the Quran, the Holy Book of Islam. The main principles of these entities include riba, Gharar, and risk sharing. The principles of the Polish banking system and the Islamic financial system are different and result from different sources of law, and consequently the Polish banking system and Islamic financial entities have more differences than similarities.
