Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study is to determine the stability of Islamic and conventional banks of 13 countries during the current subprime and the eurozone crisis. In this study, we used a sample of 69 Islamic and 88 classic banks over the 2003/2012 period. The method of the ordinary least squares is applied to examine the stability of both financial sectors. Our results show that the stability of Islamic banks is a little higher than that of conventional banks.
