Dear Mufti Saheb , Is it permissible to purchase health insurance if we are travelling to Canada or USA where if we fall sick the hospital bills (medical services) are very high. Jazakallah Khair
In principle, it is not permissible to take out a health insurance policy.
However, due to the circumstances referred to by you, we advise you purchase
the tickets by paying through a masters card which facilitates for unforseen
circumstances as referred to by yourself.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
