  • Marketing takaful products does not imply exploiting the religious factor alone. Equally important is the distribution channel. As a marketing tool the agency system is vital. Insurance agents who sell policies are not employees to the insurance operators. They work on commission basis and thus, motivated by the volume of sales made. By using agents, insurance companies can cut overhead costs and help expand markets without using or setting up new costly subsidiaries. The first Takaful operator in Malaysia, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad (STMB) did not use the agency system. STMB says that it is against the Shari[ah law to apply the contract of Agency (al Wakalah) in the takaful bus...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ismail, Norashikin; Alhabshi, Syed Othman; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2011)

  • This study analyzes the coexistence of two different organizational forms of insurance, namely Takaful and conventional insurance. We analyze the efficiency of different organizational forms in 13 countries for the period 2007-2011. Technical, allocative, cost, and revenue frontiers are estimated using data envelopment analysis. We test the expense preference hypothesis and efficient structure hypothesis. We find evidence for the efficient structure hypothesis and expense preference hypothesis in selected market segments. The results provide insight into the competitiveness of conventional and Takaful insurers from different countries.

  • Majority of Shari'ah scholars maintained the opinion that conventional insurance is not permissible in Shari'ah due to the elements of gharar "uncertainty", maysir "gambling" and riba "usury" that was found on it.

  • The study investigates the Shariah non-compliant risks in shared and outsourced functions of takaful operators through content analysis and interviews from the perspective of Maqasid al-Shariah. Shared services are generally functions that are provided in-house while outsourcing refers to the functions provided by a third party or outside the company. While these arrangements have been allowed by the regulator, the requirement for takaful operators to be Shariah-compliant end to end is paramount. The study focuses on identifying whether such risks while incorporating maslahah and cost analysis to aid decision-making on such services ... Available in physical copy and downloadable f...
