Is it permissible to work at an Insurance firm?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DaruliftaaZambia.com

Question

Can Muslims work at insurance companies?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Nabi (ﷺ) said:

طَلَبُ كَسْبِ الْحَلَالِ فَرِيضَةٌ بَعْدَ الْفَرِيضَةِ

Translation: Earning of Halal income is an obligation beyond other obligations.

(Shuabul Imaan, Baihaqi)

It is not permissible for Muslims to work at an insurance company, as this would entail assisting in insurance activities, which are prohibited in Shari’ah. [1]

Allah Ta’ala says:

وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ 

Translation: “And do not assist one another in sin”

(Surah Al-Maaidha, Aayah 2)

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

لما فيه من الإعانة على ما لا يجوز وكل ما أدى إلى ما لا يجوز لا يجوز وتمامه في شرح الوهبانية

 

المبسوط للسرخسي (16/ 38)

وَالِاسْتِئْجَارُ عَلَى الْمَعْصِيَةِ لَا تَجُوزُ

 

الهداية في شرح بداية المبتدي (3/ 238)

قال: “ولا يجوز الاستئجار على الغناء والنوح، وكذا سائر الملاهي”؛ لأنه استئجار على المعصية والمعصية لا تستحق بالعقد
