Banking industry in its attempt to attract more customers, hence capital offer various forms of benefits. These benefits basically take two forms; direct and indirect. The first type of benefits are represented by provision of dividend to depositors whereas the second type of benefits are represented by offering of insurance, sale on discount rate when using the debit card, annual gift and lucky draw. Such entitlement is dependent on having saving account in the banks. Without having saving account one would not have access to such facilities and offer.

The finding of the research shows that the benefit direct or indirect received by customer in Islamic banking have various features. All these benefits are received through depositing in the bank.
