Wa Alaikum as Salam wa Rahmatullah,

Dear Sufiyan, for opening an account with an Islamic bank in Doha, you will need to visit them and complete the formalities. Conditions vary from bank to bank. You may need to deposit an initial amount of 500-1000 Qatari Riyals. The documents required include your passport and the ID provided by Qatari government. This was for a savings account with an Islamic bank such as Qatar International Islamic Bank or Qatar Islamic Bank.

You can also manage your account online once you have opened one. Debit cards and credit cards issued by most Islamic banks in Qatar bear a Visa logo or a MasterCard logo. Such cards can generally be used at any shopping destination in the world or online, where Visa and MasterCard payments are accepted. So, yes, you can use the debit card issued by the bank in India. However, you must confirm charges for international shopping from the bank.
