The practice of pawn has grown so fast in Indonesia until the last 2010 as society needed fund easily to meet their basic need such as for school fee and debt payment. This inspired some Islamic banks and pawn shops to participate in providing this service. In fact, some Islamic banks were interested in offering this service and one pawn shop which spin off their unit to Islamic one to provide this service. Thus, this research was conducted to analyze Islamic pawn (rahn) practices in Indonesia. It focuses in the practice and characteristics of pawn service on Islamic bank and pawn shop. In addition, characteristics of interested clients would be an interesting issue that is needed to be explored further. The result may indicate that Islamic banks still less efficient due to insufficient funds and pawn shop has inherent expertise in this area.
