In this study, the effect of Islamic banking contracts, in terms of Musharekat, exchange contracts and Qard-ul-hasanah contracts on value added of the industrial sector in Iran has been investigated during the years 1380 to 1395 (based on seasonal data). In order to estimate the effects of variables, the bounds testing and autoregressive distributed lag modeling (ARDL) approaches have been used. Regression results show that Islamic banking contracts in the short and long term have led to improvements in value added of the industrial sector in Iran,which these effects are equivalent to 0.2473, 0.2405 and 0.286, respectively.
