'Where to find halal investments?'
'Is insurance halal for us to take as Muslims?'
'As a youth, should I start investing or getting my insurance needs fulfilled first?'
'What's the difference between Islamic financing and the normal financing by banks?'
Islamic Finance @ Singapore (IFSG) has received a slew of inquiries from members of the public who are curious about how Muslims should handle their financial affairs. Fortunately, this course isn't about getting you to buy insurance or investments; rather, it's about spreading awareness about an Islamic approach to personal finance in the wider community.

Q: Are you only being offered Investment Linked Policies and mutual funds?
A: Here's a list of investments that are shariah compliant, are any of your investments in this? In fact, these are just a portion of the halal investments you can access as a Singaporean!
Q:If insurance is 'darurat' or a necessity, shouldn't there be a limit to how much of insurance we can use?
A: True enough, while there are many types of insurance products out there, there are some that are nearly halal (closer to Shariah Compliant insurance) or has the lesser prohibitions.
