    Sukuk and Bonds are financial instruments issued by Governments or Corporates to raise money from investors for a period of time. Commonly, over this period, Sukuk and bonds distribute periodic coupon payments (either at a fixed or floating rate).

    Fixed rate coupon is characterized by its fixed coupon payment which does not change over time. Floating rate coupon has a variable rate which changes periodically.
