Nibah Plan

With the passage of time and age, we all observe changes in our behavior and specially our priorities in life. Although we might stay in touch but casual hangout with friends are replaced by work and family time. One of the key elements that changes is the fact that instead of focus on one’s own self the focus completely shifts towards children. We always prefer to meet the expectations of our children over our own and try to fulfill their needs to whatever extent we can and how we deem fit.

Before we know it, our children grow older and we find the cost of their education and settlement in future to be a major cause of concern. With these ever growing costs being a cause of concern for every parent, Adamjee LIfe Assurance Co.Ltd-Window Takaful Operations is introducing “Nibah” – A family takaful plan designed to cover the costs of higher education and marriage for your children when the time comes.

A Shari’ah Compliant Plan

Inline with your beliefs, Nibah offers a secure and sustainable future for your children by complying with the Shari’ah guidelines. It is a family takaful plan certified by internationally renowned religious scholars giving you the security that your investments and protection is in line with the Shari’ah principles.

What is Takaful?

The word Takaful is derived from the Arabic verb Kafala, which means to guarantee; to help; to take care of one’s needs. Takaful is a system of Islamic insurance based on the principle of Ta’awun (mutual assistance) and Tabarru (voluntary contribution), where risk is shared collectively by a group of participants, who by paying contributions to a common fund, agree to jointly guarantee themselves against loss or damage to any one of them as defined in the pact. Takaful is operated on the basis of shared responsibility, brotherhood, solidarity and mutual cooperation.

Why Nibah Plan

Two Fold Benifits

Savings

The basic regular contributions are invested in one of the two professionally managed Shari’ah compliant funds designed to help the savings grow to match the Participant’s choice of personal savings intention.

Takaful (Protection)

This is by way of transferring regular nominal contributions (‘tabarru’at’- as Takaful donations) into the WAQF Fund. This WAQF Fund protects your intention to save the agreed amount of as sum covered* over the tenure of the certificate.

*5 times of the total Annualized Basic Contribution (Basic Contribution * Mode Frequency = Annualized Basic Contribution) as a lump sum plus future remaining contributions equivalent to lower of initial basic contribution or the last basic contribution shall be paid by Adamjee Life as and when due

Surplus Sharing

In addition to Risk mitigation benefits, Takaful offers a unique feature of Surplus sharing to the Participants. Surplus in the Waqf, if any, shall be determined on individual participant basis at the end of each financial year, after maintaining necessary reserves as per the advice of appointed Actuary and Shariah Adviser. The Distributable surplus will be allocated to the PIF of eligible Participants as per defined manner.

How your Investment grows in a Shariah Compliant way:

Contributions made towards the Certificate are invested in either of Taameen Fund or Maza’af Fund. You can choose to invest fully in one of the fund that suits your investment strategy. The returns earned after deduction of risk charges, andinvestment management charges are credited to the unit account balance and accumulate as the certificate holder’s cash value. Funds are managed by a team of expert investment managers who adjust the investment mix in light of economic conditions and investment opportunities.
