  • 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. This necessitated the establishment of takaful "Islamic Insurance" in the late 1970s, but this also did not go without criticisms as there are different opinions among Islamic scholars and also legal and regulatory practitioners on the permissibility of surplus sharing and Takaful models that has been adopted by takaful operators ...

  • 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...

  • Takaful is derived from its Arabic root word 'kafala' which literally means 'to guarantee'. In terms of usage and implication, the term kafala certainly, denotes the agreement by one party to indemnify another for any liability that has been pre-agreed upon.

  • Mutual help and guarantee have been the ordinary practice of tribal Arabs even before the advent of Islam in Arabia. A similar but refined concept was reinforced by the Qur'an to be adopted by Muslims. It was widely applied in their daily lives. When the Muslims extended their trade by sea to the Far East, the concept of mutual assistance became more prominent and organised to protect their ships, merchandise and even lives from all sorts of dangers and mishaps. The practice by these merchants to put aside a sum of money before setting sail to the Far East for trade as a fund to compensate any loss incurred by any of them became the most prominent practice that led to the birth of wha...

  • The advantage of large numbers is well known in many success stories. This is not to deny that quality of the individuals can be more important than mere numbers. We have seen in history especially that of Islam, where many times the early Muslim army was outnumbered by the opponents by three, four or even ten times, yet they won almost every battle. For instance, in the first battle with idolaters of Makkah better known as Battle of Badr, in the second year of Hijrah, the Muslim army managed to gather only about 317 people, with only two horses and 70 camels for transport. The Makkans came with 1,300 strong, 100 horsemen, 600 soldiers with mail armour and many camels. Yet this first ...

  • The development of the Takaful industry in Malaysia has been encouraged by three main factors. First, the Malaysian Muslim population of more than 60% of the country's population cannot be ignored. Statistics have shown that the Muslims in Malaysia now have greater affluence and are educated; and have developed greater skills. The per capita income of the Malays has grown from 60% of the average per capita income in Malaysia in 1970 to 80% of the average per capita in 2000, attributed mainly to the implementation of the New Economic Policy (NEP) which was designed to eradicate poverty and restructure society, put in place in 1971. Takaful is necessary for Muslims as a replacement for ...

  • There is no 'best fit' business model in takaful. All existing models applied in the present day takaful are akin to fitting square pegs into round holes. Where there are needs to fit in certain aspects of the business models, the practice is to cut off corners around the square pegs to enable the fit, primarily on the basis of maslahah to ensure conformity with the commercial aspirations and objective of the business models. This paper primarily explores the feasibility of ju'alah as the underlying contract in takaful. The ju'alah business model is developed, formulated and validated as to whether it can be an alternative business model in the context of Islamic commercial insurance-...
