Key Issues and Challenges are Scarcity of human resources with both insurance and Shariah expertise, Lack of standardization in the industry that is due to Shariah interpretations, diverging regulatory approaches and the lack of centralized regulations and shortage of suitable assets. In addition, there are various technical issues within the takaful industry, which may be relevant in the valuation and risk management of takaful business. Some of the technical issues are riba, issues around retakaful, too much stress on profit distribution and lengthy procedure in claim’s settlement.
