1) Shirkat-ul-Mufavdha / Mufawadhah : In this type of partnership all partners share capital, management, profit, risk in absolute equal proportions. This is a necessary condition for the validity of this partnership. Every partner who shares equally is a Trustee, Guarantor and Agent on behalf of the other partners.

2) Shirkat-ul-Anan / Inan : In this type of partnership there can be equality in capital, management or liability but not in all respects. This means that either profit is equal but not labor or vice versa.

3) Shirkat-ul-Wajooh / Wujuh : This is a partnership in goodwill. In this type of partnership, the partners have no investment at all, but they purchase commodities on credit and the profit earned is then distributed between them at an agreed ratio.
