Family Takaful

It is an arrangement that provides long-term (usually over a year) protection and potential investment profits to individuals with dependants in case of the former’s premature death, illness, disability or deprivation of regular income during retirement.

How It Works

The Takaful Operator assumes the role of a manager of the Takaful Fund, as well as a Mudarib or Wakil (agent) to invest the contributed pool of funds in Shariah-compliant channels.

A Few Examples
