Points of Essence:

  • Salaam Halal, being the first Islamic insurance (takaful) provider in UK, plans to roll out motor insurance coverage and home insurance policy to cater for the need of the Muslim population in UK before end of the year.
  • This makes it a second Takaful offering in UK apart from HSBC’s Amanah home insurance.
  • To ensure compliance with Islamic law, all the activities and products of Salaam Insurance are overseen by its Sharia Supervisory Committee.
  • The Salaam Halal insurance products will appeal to British Muslims as well as to the non-Muslim community who are interested in products of an ethical or co-operative nature, because of the nature of Halal insurance.
