We examine the dynamic dependence of extreme returns between gold and Islamic securities under different investment horizons using a novel quantile cross-spectral dependence approach from Baruník and Kley (2019) over the period 2006–2019. Our results indicate that gold does not act as a diversifier, hedge, or safe haven tool for Islamic portfolios in the medium- and long term, particularly during both bearish and bullish gold market conditions.
