Takaful, or Islamic insurance is a cooperative scheme, where in which the participants pay a premium in the form of donation or Tabarru in a common pool in return for the ability to cover that pool upon a valid claim.
The word Takaful originates from the Arabic word Kafalah, which means “guaranteeing each other” or “joint-guarantee.”
There are four rules that govern Islamic insurance;
- The absence of interest-based (RIBA) transactions;
- The avoidance of economic activities involving speculation (GHARAR) and gambling (MAISER);
- The discouragement of the production of goods and services which contradict the value pattern of Islam (HARAM).
