Introduction “Takaful” is the Sharia Compliant brand name for the Islamic alternative to conventional insurance. Its based on the principle of Ta’awan or mutual assistance. It provides mutual protection and joint risk sharing in the event of a loss by one of its member ASA

Origins of Takaful In the event of death caused by someone from another tribe, the member of the offender’s tribe would share the “ blood money” (Feediah) to provide for the family of the victim. ASA

Why Insurance ? Is Some thing wrong with Concept ? • Risk Aversion • Assuring others • Risk sharing ASA

From the Holly Quran • The need for insurance is shown in the following verse of The Quran. “ Those of you who die and leave widows should bequeath for their widows a year’s maintenance and residence” (2.240) ASA

From the Hadiths • By Anas-bin-Malik, One day Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) notced a bedouin leaving his Camel without tying it. He asked the bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel”? The Bedouin answered, “ I put my trust in Allah (SWT)”. The Prophet (PBUH) then said,” Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah(SWT)” <Tirmidhi> ASA

What wrong with practice ? The contract between the insurer & the insured is technically wrong from the sharia perspective because of • Gharar (Uncertainty)) • Gambling (Qamar & Maisir) • Interest (Riba) ASA

Riba in Insurance • Direct Riba Excess on one side in case of exchange between the amount of premium. • Indirect Riba The interest earned on interest based investments ASA

Gharar • Lexically it means uncertainty and technically it means the uncertainty of the counteract or the subject matter. ASA

Different Models of Takaful • Pure Mudarabah Model : The participants and operator enter into modarabah Contract. • Wakalah Model : An Agency Agreement is made between participants and Operators on the basis of Wakalah ( Agency agreements) • Wakalah Based on Waqf Model : The participant's donate the fund and operator charge an agency fee. ASA

ASA

Shariah Compliance • Shariah compliance is an essential element in Takaful . • It is ensured through a Shariah Supervisory/ Advisory Board at the level of each Takaful company. • The role of the Shariah Board is vital in meeting the specific demand of a public who would not insure otherwise. ASA

General Takaful Types • General Takaful – offers all kinds of non-life risk coverage. It is normally divided into following classes: – Property Takaful – Marine Takaful – Motor Takaful – Miscellaneous Takaful ASA

Types of Family Takaful • Term Life Takaful • Whole Life Takaful • Endowment Takaful • Universal Takaful • Marriage Plan • Education Plan ASA

Re Malaysia (1997) ASEAN ReTakaful International. Dubai (2005) TakafulRe by ARIG. Lloyds of London to have a ReTakaful Syndicate in 2007. ASA

Takaful Pioneers • Takaful started some 27 years ago in the Middle East with the launching of two companies: – The Islamic Arab Insurance Co. (IAIC) in the UAE and – The Islamic Insurance Co. of Sudan • But it took some time for the movement to take shape. ASA

Takaful Pioneers • Later in 1984, Malaysia played a pioneering role in setting the first Legal framework specific to Takaful (Takaful Act). • This was instrumental in the successful launching of the Takaful movement in Malaysia and in other countries of South East Asia. ASA

Takaful Operators • The number of Takaful operators worldwide is now estimated at: • 108 Takaful companies • 6 Retakaful companies • In 35 Countries. • Average growth rate higher than conventional insurance companies (around 25%). • Non–Muslims increasingly opting for Takaful products for commercial benefits. ASA

Challenges • Business Model Dilemma • Could create an uneven / unfair business environment to operate • Need to reach a consensus internationally on a common and standard Takaful business model • Poor Insurance penetration in the Muslim countries (<1% of GDP). ASA

Takaful Best Practices • Regional Takaful institutions and organisations need to come together internationally in order to promote and standardise best practices within the industry: – – – – Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB) ASEAN Takaful Group (ATG) International Takaful Association (ITA) Accounting and Auditing Organization of Islamic Financial institutions (AAOIFI) ASA

Growth Outlook • World Muslim population is estimated at 1.5 billions, of which around 97% are based in Asia and Africa. • A two-digit growth in the range of 15% to 20% can be reasonably sustained for at least the next 10 years in the existing markets (Far and Middle East). ASA

Takaful Prospects in Pakistan • 97% Muslim population. • Demand for insurance increasing with increase in per capita income. • Personal lines insurance business (leasing, health, Medicare) growing at a higher rate than other conventional classes. • Islamic banking on sound footing with support of the Govt.
