TakafulNET as an Alternative to Conventional Insurance
Takaful insurance is different from conventional insurance in many ways. Its rates are fixed, and you’re not charged for extra risks.

By comparison, a conventional insurance company will charge extra for these risks, and you may find yourself paying more than you have to.
Takaful is a form of Islamic insurance. It involves some risk, but it’s legal from an Islamic perspective. The money that you deposit into Takaful will be used to help you if you experience an unfortunate situation.
