The Shariah Advisory Council (SAC) of Bank Negara Malaysia at its 186th meeting on 31 July 2018 decided that the distribution of a takaful fund’s surplus (after meeting all of the takaful participant’s rights and takaful fund’s liabilities) in the event of a winding up of a takaful operator (TO) to the takaful protection fund managed and owned by Malaysia Deposit Insurance Corporation (PIDM) is permissible, provided that such surplus shall first be utilised to cover the deficit of any other takaful funds and the liability of the failed TO.
