The customers measure the quality of the bank through the quality of its services. Banking services in Islamic banks are more sensitive given that Islamic banking is characterized by special risks that are clearly reflected in the concept of banking services. These risks are represented in the risk of reputation for compliance with Shari'ah. This risk is represented furthermore in the assumption that the Islamic bank is committed to the Islamic values and ethics, the client expects these

assumptions to appear in the banking service he receives.
