Fuji Rahmadi, Amiur Nuruddin, Nawir Yuslem


Islam considers insurance or “insured” as a social phenomenon that was ormed by helping each other and humanity. Treasure gained after the death of a person as a result of a cause that by its nature will bring profit, which is done in the period he was still alive then the property as it was by Ibn Hajar al-Haytami, an expert from the Shafi'ites fiqh, in his book Tuhfatul-Muhtaj Syarah Kitab al-Minhaj (by Imam al-Nawawi), fall into the category tirkah treasure. Although the normative existence of insurance is a necessity in the communities in Indonesia but considering Indonesia as a Muslim majority country, then its existence cannot be released by the paradigm of the dynamics of the system of Islamic law. Therefore in this paper describes some of the approaches used in assessing the existence of insurance in Indonesia, it is not enough just to use the normative approach to Islam, but must be coupled with a conventional legal approach that is shaded by the science of law, especially constitutional law.
