Working as an Insurance Agent

Q: I have been offered a position as an insurance agent selling auto insurance which is mandatory in Toronto, Canada. I only provide a quote for coverage but it is not binding. The insurance company does the binding/transaction. Will this be a halal option for me?


A:
Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

This form of occupation is not permissible. You should seek an alternative that is in accordance with Shariah principles.

May Allah bless you with halal income with ease and comfort and protect us all from haram. Ameen.

And Allah  Knows Best
