Why should you buy Takaful Car Insurance in Dubai?

As you know, it is mandatory for vehicle owners to buy Auto insurance in UAE. When you buy Takaful Car Insurance in UAE, you buy insurance in accordance with Islamic laws.

The framework of Takaful strictly avoids the elements of Riba, i.e. interest & usury, and Gharar i.e. the ambiguous/unknown factor in the contract. Riba & Gharar are the main reasons why Muslim scholars consider conventional insurance policies against the basic principles of Shari’ah.

Takaful helps manage potential financial needs and secures the policyholder against any unpredicted events in complete compliance with Sharia’h.
