Yaquby has spoken in favor of the creation of an Islamic finance mega-institution by countries such as Malaysia, Sudan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Bahrain and others to streamline industry management and minimize risks. He is also known for his market-friendly rulings, including backing the use of the organized tawarruq structure, which the OIC Fiqh Academy declared to be a "deception" which contains elements of interest-based lending.
He also received guidance in classical Shari’ah from prominent scholars such as Abdulla al-Farisi, Yusuf al-Siddiqi, Muhammed Saleh al-Abasi and Muhammed Yasin al-Fadani. Experience includes khatib in Bahrain mosques (1981-1990), teaching tafsir, hadith, and fiqh in Bahrain.
Yaquby was awarded the inaugural Zaki Badawi Award for Excellence in Shariah Advisory at the International Real Estate Finance (IREF) 2008 Awards which was held at the Park Plaza Hotel in Central London on the evening of 16 December 2008.
