I am writing to ask if you might be interested in taking a look at a proposal we are considering for publication, tentatively entitled Islamic Insurance (Takaful) Products: Principles, Instruments and Structures, by Mohd Ma’Sum Billah. A brief description of the book is below: The growth of Islamic finance today is undeniably with satisfactory results in its services, product innovation, performance and achievements. Islamic insurance market is no exception, which is also catching the global market recognition in a parallel platform as the Islamic finance moves forward. The rapid growth of Islamic insurance creates a platform with awareness among industries, academia, students and professionals a demand of understanding on offered products of Islamic Insurance and their structures so that, the market appreciation may be more enrichable. Thus, the proposed title is timely to meet the contemporary market demand as to understand the Islamic insurance products and their Shari’ah compliant structures so to benefit the emergence market across the world. Would you be interested in offering us a short, anonymous evaluation of the proposal? The material is about five pages total and we would provide a questionnaire to structure your response.

Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you are interested in this review.
