The Islamic capital market is a securities trading system whose instruments and transaction mechanisms do not conflict with sharia principles. Thus, the Islamic capital market has the obligation to comply with applicable laws as well as Islamic law. One of the principles in the Islamic capital market is the prohibition of gharar or uncertainty. However, the capital market is inherently uncertain in the form of investment risk. Knowing this, this thesis aims to find out how legal protection guarantees a sharia compliant transaction for retail investors in the Islamic capital market. The reasearch was conducted using a normative jurdicial method which was then carried out a qualitative analysis od the data found. The results of this study indicate that the provisions governing the transaction mechanism in the islamic capital market have provided protection that ensures the implementation of investment of investment activities does not conflict with sharia prinsiples. Protection is provided through an online-based trading system that automatically rejects transactions that contain elements that are contrary to sharia principles. However, the transactions carried out in the Islamic capital market are still too small when compared to transactions in the conventional capital market. So that legal protection for transactions in the Islamic capital market cannot affect the stability of the market as a whole. Yet, this does not mean that there are no protection at all. The Indonesia Stock Exchange as a facilitator who has a function as a capital market regulator, has imposed restrictions on trading volume with provisions for trading halts and price limits. However, due to the dynamic nature of the capital market, it is necessary to review and update repeatedly in order to produce effective provisions for stabilizing the capital market.
