CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad launches Takaful Mulia, a first-in-market Takaful policy specially designed for Muslims to benefit from coverage upon death or Total Permanent Disability (TPD), savings and benefits related to Islamic religious obligations such as waqf, zakat, fidyah/sadaqah, and hajj/umrah. Takaful Mulia also provides an additional 100% of sum assured for accidental death or TPD that occurred in a mosque or surau, and/or while performing the Hajj or Umrah. Takaful Mulia is the latest addition to CIMB Islamic’s suite of Takaful solutions developed exclusively for CIMB Islamic by its bancatakaful partner, Sun Life Malaysia Takaful Berhad.

We are proud to have partnered with CIMB Islamic to offer this innovative Takaful Mulia which helps CIMB clients to not only leave something for their loved ones upon their demise, but also fulfil their religious obligations of waqf, zakat, and sadaqah.
