  9. Risk Mitigation Since the beginning, people have tried to protect themselves from risks and resulting losses • What is Risk? • Risk is the potential danger that threatens to harm or destroy an object, an event or a person

  10. Risk Mitigation Tools Available Risk Mitigation Tools? • Avoid Risk Mitigation: • A concept generally misunderstood as Tawwakul. Tawakkaulby definition however is employment of all Halal available means/resources and entrusting Allah SWT with the outcome • Self-Insurance or setting aside contingency money for the rainy day • Conventional Insurance: • A commercially viable system but inherently flawed with Shari’ah defined ills such as Riba, Gharar, and Qimar/Maysir • Takaful: • A Halal and Ethical alternate to conventional insurance

  11. Risk Mitigation in Islam • Is the concept of risk mitigation permissible in Islam? • This very concept is not only lawful/permissible in Islam but is in fact encouraged • Islamic history is replete with examples featuring activities involving risk mitigation: • Hadith: • “Tie the Camel and then Submit to the Will of Allah” • DhamanKhatr al-Tareeq: • A person would undertake another person’s risks without any consideration/fee in return • Dhaman Al-d’ark: • A person would influence a sale by promising to compensate for the loss if the subject-matter proved faulty • Aqila: • A risk sharing mechanism in which community members pooled their share of Diyat (blood money) • The underlying theme in all these examples is the concept of brotherhood and mutual solidarity

  12. TAKAFUL CONVENTIONAL INSURANCE Conventional Insurance vs Takaful

  13. The Conventional Insurance Process • The customer pays premiums in exchange for claim (at the time of risk actualization) from the Insurer CLAIMS (Upon Risk Actualization) PREMIUMS (MONEY)

  14. Shariah’s Stance on Conventional Insurance ? concept of Insurance? practice of Insurance? Shariah has no objections as to the concept or objectives of insurance ; it only has reservations with the way it is being practiced…

  15. Shariah’s Stance on Conventional Insurance Point # 1 • It is a sales-purchase contract. In Shari’ah terms it is called AqdMuawaza Point # 2 • Premiums belong to the company Point # 3 • Insurance company pays the claims from its own pockets Point # 4 • Premiums are invested in all kinds of investment avenues, including Riba-based businesses

  16. Riba, Gharar, Qimar/Maysir • Because this is sales-purchase contract i.e. Aqd Muawaza, this kind of risk mitigation involves: R I B A G H A R A R Q I M A R / M A Y S I R DIRECT RIBA The difference between the premiums paid by the policyholder and the claims received IN-DIRECT RIBA Premiums are invested in Riba-based investment avenues

  17. Riba, Gharar, Qimar/Maysir • Because this is sales-purchase contract i.e. Aqd Muawaza, this kind of risk mitigation involves: R I B A G H A R A R Q I M A R / M A Y S I R In Aqd Muawaza, Shariah does not allow Gharar & Qimar/Maysir. Gharar is present because the Subject Matter of the contract does not exist, is not specifiable, and the time of delivery is uncertain G H A R A R

  18. Riba, Gharar, Qimar/Maysir • Because this is sales-purchase contract i.e. Aqd Muawaza, this kind of risk mitigation involves: R I B A G H A R A R Q I M A R / M A Y S I R In Aqd Muawaza, Shariah does not allow Gharar & Qimar/Maysir. Total loss of premiums paid by the participant in case the risk doesn’t actualize Q I M A R / M A Y S I R

  20. Definition of Takaful • The word “Takaful” originates from Arabic language. • Its root word is “kafala” which means “to guarantee”. • Through inflection it changed to “takafala” which means “to help each other” or to “jointly guarantee each other.”

  21. The Concept of Takaful • Takaful is a community-pooling system in which participants contribute their savings into the common fund to help those who need it most in times of financial difficulty • It is based on the concept of brotherhood and mutual solidarity. • EXAMPLES: The concept of Takaful is manifested in the system of BaitulMaal, the cooperative societies and the joint-family set ups etc…

  22. Takaful Process • Takaful Operator creates the Waqf Fund or the “Taburru Fund” • Participants contribute their premiums/contributions on the basis of “Taburru” into this Waqf Fund • The Waqf Fund pays the claims Surplus WAQF FUND Claims Takaful Operator Contributions

  23. WAQF Key Points on Takaful Process Point # 1 • Contributions are paid on the basis of Taburru. In Shariah such a contract is called Aqd Taburru Point # 2 • Contributions are credited to the Waqf Fund; Operator acts as Wakeel Point # 3 • The Waqf Fund pays the claims Point # 4 • Contributions are invested only in Shari’ah Compliant investment avenues Point # 5 • An independent Shariah Board supervises business activities for Shariah compliance
