    FCB Takaful

    Takaful helps us get through tough times

    When we experience loss or damage whether it’s our property or even an injury it can be tough to recover. Takaful helps us get through these tough times.

    Takaful literally means “guaranteeing each other” in Arabic.

    Takaful is founded on the principles of donation and mutual cooperation (Tabaru’a and Ta’awun). Hence, FCB Takaful is a self-catering scheme that offers financial aid to participating members in need, based on brotherhood and solidarity.

    About FCB Takaful

    Takaful creates a pool of funds from mutual cooperation by participants with the aim of offering financial aid to any of the participants who might suffer a loss.
