In this interlocutory appeal, Yaseen Educational Society appeals the trial court's amended order granting the Islamic Association of Arabi, Ltd.'s, plea to the jurisdiction in Yaseen's suit seeking confirmation of an arbitration award, entitled "Verdict of the Arbitration Committee (Majlis-e-Shari'ah)." An appellate court has no jurisdiction over arbitration awards that are incomplete. The absence of an unambiguous "decision" or "verdict" by the binding authority causes the 2012 "verdict" to be incomplete. The Islamic Association's motion to dismiss this appeal is granted.
