All foreign investments are subject to risks of: (1) foreign political and economic instability; (2) adverse movements in foreign exchange rates; (3) currency devaluation; (4) the imposition or tightening of exchange controls or other limitations on repatriation of foreign capital; (5) changes in foreign governmental attitudes towards private investment, including potential nationalization, increased taxation or confiscation of assets; and (6) differing reporting, accounting, and auditing standards of foreign countries.</font> <font style="FONT-FAMILY: Helvetica" size="3">The value of Income Fund shares rises and falls as the value of the securities in which the Fund invests goes up and down.

Investment decisions are made in accordance with Islamic principles. The Fund diversifies its investments across the countries of the developing world, industries, and companies, and generally follows a value investment style.<br/><br/>In determining whether a country is part of the developing world, the adviser will consider such factors as the country's per capita gross domestic product, the percentage of the country's economy that is industrialized, market capitalization as a percentage of gross domestic product, the overall regulatory environment, and limits on foreign ownership and restrictions on repatriation of initial capital or income.<br/><br/>By allowing investments in companies headquartered in more advanced economies yet having the majority of assets or revenues in the developing world, the Developing World Fund seeks to reduce its foreign investing risk.</font> <font style="FONT-FAMILY: Helvetica" size="3">The value of Developing World Fund shares rises and falls as the value of the stocks in which the Fund invests goes up and down.

Because Islamic principles preclude the use of interest-paying instruments, the Fund does not maximize current income because reserves remain in cash.<br/><br/>The Developing World Fund involves risks not typically associated with investing in U.S. securities. These include fluctuations in currency exchange rates, currency devaluation, less public information about securities, less governmental market supervision, and lack of uniform financial, accounting, social and political standards. <br/><br/>Investments in the securities of foreign issuers may involve risks in addition to those normally associated with investments in the securities of U.S. issuers. All foreign investments are subject to risks of: (1) foreign political and economic instability; (2) adverse movements in foreign exchange rates; (3) currency devaluation; (4) the imposition or tightening of exchange controls or other limitations on repatriation of foreign capital; (5) changes in foreign governmental attitudes towards private investment, including potential nationalization, increased taxation or confiscation of assets, and (6) differing reporting, accounting, and auditing standards of foreign countries.
