The questionnaires were distributed randomly to 136 samples/ respondents. The interview was conducted to 10 informants in order to elaborate meaning, respondent’s understanding need and response on syaria insurance. The data analysis method was descriptive-qualitative analysis. The findings showed that most respondents had good level of understanding on syaria insurance. Some respondents stated that insurance was “important” while some others stated that it was “very important.” The respondents considered syaria insurance as investment, financial solution, financial security, business requirement, pension plan and future investment.
