Dinar and Dirham
Abu Bakr ibn Abi Maryam reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say: "A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing [left] which will be of use save a dinar and a dirham." (The Musnad of Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal)

Gold and silver are the most stable currency the world has ever seen

From the beginning of Islam until today, the value of the Islamic bimetallic currency has remained surprisingly stable in relation to basic consumable goods:

A chicken at the time of the Prophet, salla'llahu alaihi wa sallam, cost one dirham; today, 1,400 years later, a chicken costs approximately one dirham.

In 1,400 years inflation is zero.

Could we say the same about the dollar or any other paper currency in the last 25 years?

In the long term the bimetallic currency has proved to be the most stable currency the world has ever seen. It has survived, despite all the attempts by governments to transform it into a symbolic currency by imposing a nominal value different from its weight.


Gold cannot be inflated by printing more of it; it cannot be devalued by government decree, and unlike paper currency it is an asset which does not depend upon anybody's promise to pay.

Portability and anonymity of gold are both important, but the most significant fact is that gold is an asset that is no-one else´s liability.

All forms of paper assets: bonds, shares, and even bank deposits, are promises to repay money borrowed. Their value is dependent upon the investor's belief that the promise will be fulfilled. As junk bonds and the Mexican peso have illustrated, a questionable promise soon loses value.

Gold is not like this. A piece of gold is independent of the financial system, and its worth is underwritten by 5,000 years of human experience.

One Dirham

(Hadapan - Front)
Dirham Perak - Islamic Silver Dirham
Ketulinan (Purity): 999 silver
Negara Pengeluar: Islamic Mint Dubai
Weights: 2.975 grams
Diameter: 25mm

According to Islamic law, the Islamic dinar is a coin of 22k (91.7%) gold weighing 4.25 grams. The Islamic dirham coin is 2.975 grams of pure silver. Umar Ibn al-Khattab established the known standard relationship between them based on their weights: "7 dinars must be equivalent (in weight) to 10 dirhams."

Dirham adalah syiling yang diperbuat dari perak. Ukuran berat satu Dirham ialah 2.975 gram.
Berat 10 Dirham bersamaan dengan berat 7 Dinar Emas. Berat 1 Dinar Emas ialah 4.25 gram.

Dinar Emas dan Dirham Perak adalah dua matawang Islam. Penggunaannya seolah-orang tenggelam begitu sahaja setelah seluruh dunia menerima wang kertas sebagai matawang. Nilai wang kertas tidak stabil dan lebih tidak stabil lagi apabila sandaran kepada emas dimansuhkan melalui pembatalan Britton Woods System oleh Presiden Nixon, Presiden US ketika itu.

Emas dan Perak dilihat dapat mengekalkan nilainya. Walau pun dunia tidak mahu menerima Dinar dan Dirham sebagai matawang, tetapi hakikat yang sebenarnya tidak dapat ditolak. Dunia memperakui Emas dan Perak adalah dua logam bernilai disamping Platinum dan Palladium yang mana logam-logam ini adalah komoditi yang diniagakan dipasaran antarabangsa.

Jesteru itu ramai orang persaorangan yang menyimpan Dinar Emas, Gold Coin, Gold Bar, Dirham Perak, Silver Coin dan Silver Bar.

Di Malaysia tidak ramai yang menyimpan Dirham dan Silver Coin/Bar kerana disini masih tiada pasaran. Walau bagaimanapun Dirham dan Silver Coin ini disimpan sebagai koleksi oleh penggemar-penggemar syiling.
