A Beginner's Guide to HAQQ Network

Traditional finance has always presented challenges for Muslims seeking financial solutions that align with their religious beliefs. In Islam, financial conduct is guided by the Shariah law which strictly prohibits practices such as the payment or receipt of interest (Riba) or engaging in transactions with excessive uncertainty (Gharar) commonly found in traditional finance. Similarly, conventional blockchain networks, while efficient in many ways, often allow practices that are incompatible with Islamic principles. This has led to a growing demand for Sharia-compliant alternatives that offer transparency, fairness, and ethical integrity.

HAQQ Network emerges as the ideal solution. Built upon the principles of ethics-first and adherence to Islamic law, the HAQQ Network represents a groundbreaking solution tailored specifically to the needs of the Muslim community. With its focus on transparency, fairness, and inclusivity, the HAQQ Network aims to provide financial services that empower individuals to engage in transactions that are not only technologically advanced but also morally upright. By leveraging blockchain technology, the HAQQ Network offers a decentralized platform where users can access a range of financial services, from payments to lending, all while upholding the principles of Shariah law. This article explores the HAQQ Network, its features, functionalities and the role it plays in reshaping the landscape of digital finance.

What is HAQQ Network?

In the fast-changing landscape of modern finance, the emergence of blockchain technology has brought about disruptive changes, reshaping the way we think about transactions, ownership, and trust. At its core, blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger that records transactions across multiple computers in a way that is transparent, secure, and immutable. Imagine it as a digital notebook shared among a network of computers, where each transaction is recorded as a block, creating a chain of information that cannot be altered or tampered with.

HAQQ Network is a unique blockchain network that is designed to cater to the distinct needs of the global Muslim community. HAQQ Network aims to introduce a variety of financial instruments that comply with Islamic principles. One example is Sukuk or Islamic bonds. Unlike traditional bonds, which often involve interest (riba) payments, Sukuk bonds represent ownership in an underlying asset. For instance, if you invest in a real estate project through a Sukuk, you earn a portion of the rent generated by the property rather than receiving interest. This aligns with Islamic principles of profit-sharing. Other features of HAQQ Network include:


HAQQ Network is a decentralized system. This means there's no central authority controlling transactions. Imagine a community-run system where everyone participates in verifying transactions. This promotes transparency, security, and removes the risk of manipulation often associated with centralized institutions.

Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Like many blockchains, HAQQ Network connects with the world of DeFi, opening doors to new ethical investment opportunities. DeFi allows for peer-to-peer financial transactions without intermediaries like banks. This is particularly appealing for Muslims seeking alternative investment options that avoid practices like Riba.

Proof-of-Stake Consensus Mechanism

The decentralized nature of HAQQ Network is further strengthened by its Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. Unlike Proof-of-Work systems used by some blockchain networks, which require vast amounts of energy, Proof-of-Stake is much more energy-efficient. Here's the basic idea: users who hold ISLM (HAQQ's native currency) can participate in securing the network and earn rewards. This aligns with the Islamic principle of avoiding Riba (interest) as rewards are based on contribution rather than simply holding wealth.

Understanding Islamic Coin (ISLM)

ISLM is the primary digital asset used within the HAQQ Network. Just like any bustling marketplace needs a common currency, HAQQ Network has its own digital asset which powers its decentralized ecosystem. Here's a closer look at how ISLM functions within the network:


ISLM facilitates seamless transactions within the HAQQ Network. Whether it's sending funds to another user, purchasing goods and services, or engaging in decentralized finance (DeFi) activities, ISLM serves as the primary medium of exchange. Transactions on the network are fast, secure, and cost-effective, thanks to the blockchain architecture underlying ISLM.


As mentioned earlier, HAQQ utilizes a Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. Users who hold ISLM can stake their coins to participate in securing the network and earn rewards in return. Staking involves locking up a certain amount of ISLM to support the network's operations. This process not only helps secure the network but also incentivizes users to actively contribute to its growth and stability.


Tokenomics refers to the overall structure and design of a cryptocurrency within its ecosystem. Simply put, tokenomics consider factors like the total supply of ISLM, its distribution, and how it's used within the network. This is important as it helps ensure the long-term sustainability and growth of the HAQQ ecosystem. For a comprehensive of ISLM tokenomics, visit our whitepaper.

Ethical and Community-Driven Solutions

HAQQ Network takes a community-driven approach to finance. This means that users participate in the development and governance of the network. Through decentralized governance mechanisms like staking, users have a say in shaping the future of HAQQ Network and its financial products. This way, HAQQ Network promotes financial fairness and inclusivity.

Increased Financial Inclusion:

By offering access to Sharia-compliant financial tools and services, HAQQ Network levels the playing field for individuals who may have been marginalized by traditional financial systems. Through HAQQ Network, users can participate in the global economy on their own terms, contributing to greater economic empowerment and prosperity within the Muslim community.

Getting Started on HAQQ Network

Interacting with any blockchain network requires a cryptocurrency wallet. This is how you can send and receive funds or perform any transaction on the blockchain.

HAQQ Wallet

To interact with the HAQQ Network, you need to download and set up your HAQQ wallet. With the HAQQ wallet you can securely store your ISLM and interact with DeFi applications built on HAQQ Network. Downloading the wallet is easy. Simply visit the HAQQ Network website and follow the instructions for your device (iOS or Android). Once downloaded, explore the wallet's features to familiarize yourself with sending, receiving, and staking ISLM.

Acquiring ISLM

Once you have downloaded and set up your HAQQ wallet, the next thing is to purchase some ISLM tokens. Acquiring ISLM is easy and seamless. You can either buy ISLM directly within the HAQQ wallet via the integrated peer-to-peer (P2P) platforms like Onramp. This option is fast and hassle-free. Alternatively, ISLM is listed on major cryptocurrency exchanges like KuCoin or decentralized exchanges like Sushi, providing users with versatile options for trading ISLM. However, avoid leaving large amounts of ISLM on exchanges and instead transfer them to your HAQQ Wallet for safekeeping.
