WORLD BANK | ISLAMIC FINANCE SERVICES BOARD - Washington and Kuala Lumpur, 2016

Consulting and contributing the chapter on: "The Role of Microtakāful in Financial Inclusion: the Foundational Claims of Insurance in Islam" in a joint WB/IFSB publication titled "Realising the Value Proposition of the Takāful Industry for a Stable and Inclusive Financial System".

To effectively contribute to the needs of the have-nots, micro takāful needs to be true to itself, to its foundational claims and to its own economic ethos by making use of the traditionally and abundantly available resources of zakat and waqf.

The attempt of squeezing Shariah-based insurance principles into the neo-classical framework which is alien to the eco-system where it wants to deploy its proposition, is a non-starter for micro takāful. This can be done only at the cost of compromising its own core values and will ultimately result in the failure of the proposition.
