Takaful Insurance

Takaful is a Shariah compliant insurance option grounded in Islamic Muamalat (Islamic transactions) products. ... The term Takaful also refers to the concept of Islamic insurance based on mutual cooperation, where both risks and funds are shared between the insured and insurer.

The Difference Between Takaful and Conventional Life Insurance

Although essentially both Takaful and conventional life insurance serves the same purpose of providing coverage, there are major differences between the two as can be seen below:

Individual enters the agreement to contribute to a fund that can potentially help those experiencing the unfortunate situation. On the other hand, a conventional insurance policy is purchased as a personal financial security for an individual, and the insurance company is the risk bearer.

The conventional investment units of insurance will invest based on their assessment of what fits their profiles. However, Takaful investments will follow strict principles. Takaful cannot invest in anything that has elements of gambling, uncertainty or the practice of lending money at unreasonably high-interest rates.

If there is extra money because of low claim rates by insurers under Takaful, it will be distributed to participants. While the profits from investments will be distributed to both participants and shareholders.

Takaful operators make money through performance fee or by sharing the surplus. But the total amount of payment from the surplus that Takaful operators get cannot exceed the amount that is paid to Takaful participants.

However, under conventional insurance, extra money and profits belong to the shareholders of the insurance companies.

Public Liability Insurance

Owning a business or being self-employed can be a risky thing. Even if you don’t think about it in that way, every interaction your business has with the general public is a risk. For example:

1. A customer slips and falls in your store
2. A guest is injured at an event or conference your business is hosting
3. A client sits in one of your chairs and the chair collapses injuring them
4. Your store sign falls down and hits a pedestrian in the head

We live in a very litigious society and you face the risk of being sued every single day. Many of these risks have to do with your business premises or the type of operations your business performs. To protect against this, it is recommended that most business carry Public Liability insurance (PLI).

Why Purchase Public Liability Insurance?

If your business is frequented by members of the public, you work in a public space, or if you work at a client’s location, you would likely need this type of insurance as there is potential for you to cause bodily injury or property damage to a 3rd party.

For example, if you damaged a customer’s floor while installing cabinets in their kitchen, your Public Liability Insurance policy would cover you.

For a lot of small to medium-sized businesses, the effect of needing to pay damages for bodily injury or property damage can have a severe impact on the financial bottom line of the business and the owner(s). Damages awarded in recent years have been so big that it could potentially bankrupt you. With these types of stakes on the line, it makes sense to pay a manageable premium in order to stave off a potentially catastrophic event.

Key Coverages

1. Sums you’re legally liable to pay to a 3rd party for bodily injury or property damage

2. All costs and expenses incurred for defending any claims against you

Personal/Group Accident

The policy protects the Insured against loss or damage as a result of death or bodily injury casued by accident, violence, external and visible means independent of any other cause. It is a benefit policy and is not subject to the principle of indemnity. (An insured may not be compensated by the insurance company in an amount exceeding the insured's economic loss.)


Under this policy we have:
1. Personal accident
2. Group personal accident

The distinction between the two is that whereas the Personal Accident Policy is issued to an individual, Group Personal Accident Policy is issued to a number of persons, normally the employees of a business. The policy is taken by the organization which is the umbrella person on behalf of its employees.

For the Insurer to be liable under this policy, the injury must be accidental and the accident must be:

Violent: The smallest degree of violence is sufficient to satisfy the requirement of the contract.

External: The cause must arise from outside the body, but internal injury is sufficient to give rise to a valid claim if caused by external means.

Visible: The triggering cause of injury must be visible, if this were constrained in its popular sense it would exclude the inhalation of an invisible gas, however if a man who was running for a bus dropped dead from heart failure, the insurer will not be liable because no injury was caused by external and visible means.

All Risk Insurance Packages
