"Raheel butt is one of promising young lawyers with whom I had worked closely when structuring products during his work with Alsalam bank Bahrain. He is very smart and grabs Sharia issues quickly. He is a kind of lawyer we need in Islamic banking and finance arena today because, in my view, lawyers should be able to structure Islamic documents to meet first sharia requirements and at the same time protect their clients. Raheel has that quality. Another good thing about him is that he does not take sharia rulings at their face value. He always asked why it should be done in this and not in this way. I wish him a very successful life."

"Raheel is a very sorted out and balanced individual. His knowledge of legal aspects of complex transactions and attention to finer details combined with his congeniality to work with large group of individuals makes him a perfect fit to have in a team. His commitment to anchor and steer an assignment to its logical conclusion is commendable. Absolutely dependable and available all the time to support on any legal aspects of a transaction or provide invaluable guidance is a quality that I discovered when working with him. A trustworthy professional is what I remember Raheel."
