Q: John’s car collided with Zaid’s car injuring Zaid. John’s insurance company pays Zaid as compensation for his injuries. Is it permissible for Zaid to accept this payment and benefit from it — keeping in mind that insurance companies make money through gambling and interest?
A: Since they paid Zaid on behalf of John, Zaid is justified in taking the money.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
