Under Malaysia law system, the disputing parties may resolve their business dispute through the court or various Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms. The ADR includes negotiation, mediation and arbitration mechanism.

The negotiation tends to be used as the first option, then followed by the court trial or mediation. The finding implies that the disputing parties should consider any possible dispute resolution method under the jurisdiction where a sukuk is structured to resolve the defaulted sukuk.
