Micro Takaful is an affordable alternative protection policy for those who cannot afford a high-end level protection policy. However, many in the low-income group do not own a personal or family protection policy because they cannot afford the monthly premium rates. Zakat and wakaf could become an alternative source of funds for developing micro takaful. This qualitative study intends to explain the need to integrate zakat funds and wakaf in order to develop micro takaful. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews involving three institutions, namely Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Keluarga Berhad, Muftis Office in the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council and the Muftis Office in the Selangor Islamic Religious Council. Findings show that there are two major pressing needs for integrating zakat and wakaf, which are to provide a huge risk savings fund and to support an insufficient zakat fund and wakaf.
