Since the services (products) offered by takaful operators in Malaysia are based on Syariah principles, takaful have become one of the competitors to the conventional insurers that have been long operating in Malaysia. In general, takaful services are not fully accepted and subscribed by the Islamic community themselves due to the lack of awareness of takaful roles in their lives and their economy eventhough the takaful services (products) are known to be managed and operated on Islamic principles. In takaful, transactions and services emphases on justice, transparency and mutual cooperation among the participants. Other factors that contribute to the community not subscribing are insufficient understanding, less disposal income for additional savings and expediture for takaful, stiff competition and product innovation from the conventional companies and many other related factors.
