In line with its mission of empowering customers to take control of their financial futures, the leading Shariah-compliant saving scheme in the UAE has announced the launch of a diverse range of Islamic Insurance Plans starting from 50 fils a day. The plans, which are designed to provide lifestyle protection, are structured to safeguard customers and their loved ones against accidents, critical illness, disabilities and death.
