Takáful (Insurance) and Contract
– Part of the 8-Month Certified Islamic Finance Programme
About the Course:
Risk mitigation is becoming part and parcel of our daily life, and we tend to resort to insurance policies to cover such risks. However, due to the prohibited elements in insurance contracts Takaful has emerged as a viable Islamic alternative.
This one-day course will enlighten participants about the operation of Takaful models and offer a framework for risk mitigation. Fiqhi and legal issues will be explored within the UK context.
