This study deals with the principle of banking secrecy in terms of its definition, legality, scope, penalty of violation and exceptions related to it in a comparative study between the Jordanian Banking Law and Islamic Shari'ah.
Through this work, it has been found that the principle of banking secrecy is legally established and involves the interests of the client, the bank and society in general, and that this principle has its own objective, personal and temporal scope, and that the violation of this norm is a crime in the light of Shari'ah and law. In accordance with justice and public interest this principle tends to have several exceptions.
