Answered by: Alimah Sofia Mirza

Question:

Is it allowed for someone who becomes a revert to take money from life insurance that is been left by his/her brother or family member who is not Muslim?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

The inheritance which is left by a non-Muslim relative this person is living in a non-Islamic  state and the money is distributed according to their methods by which the money received is considered as a gift from the government it will be permissible, however, if the money is distributed according to the Islamic method it will not be permissible to inherit from a Non-Muslim relative as the Prophet mentioned that “The Muslim does not inherit the disbeliever nor does the disbeliever inherit the Muslim.”[1]

Only Allah knows best
