Takaful is an insurance concept that has been in use for over 1400 years. Grounded in Islamic Muamalat, observing the rules and regulation of Shariah, the Takaful system is based on mutual cooperation, responsibility, protection and assistance. The fundamentals are based on the Holy Quran and the sayings of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.
The Takaful system stresses the spirit of cooperation and joint-responsibility among participants. Participants enjoy monetary benefits through the Takaful plan itself and “benefits” through the spiritual sense through the act of Tabarru (donation), participants receive God’s grace and blessings in the Hereafter.
But what if you are not a Muslim? Well, the good part is that Takaful does not differentiate color or creed. Everyone can use Takaful, religious beliefs are not relevant, and everyone can benefit the satisfaction of helping people.
