Q: I have a question. Actually my friend was telling me about mufti tariq Masood’s advise to insurance company. I utter it is a good idea. It’s better then sadqa and khairyat that can help people life time. Then I was getting feeling inside that maybe you have uttered wrong words saying better then sadqa. I want to know is something wrong I uttered. And also I said to myself wo Deen jo Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) lae. Actually I was doing bayan to myself and I feel maybe this word utter wrong . Hazrat I know it’s wired question but I get waswasa or something disease when I ever I talk something I check whether it’s kufr or not? Please advise me so that I never follow my inside feeling.
A: If you had meant that insurance is better than sadaqah then obviously it is wrong. Make istighfaar and taubah for this.
Don’t pay attention to this. This is not an act of ibaadat. There is no reward for this. The pious of the past and present don’t practise this. Why should you assume to be more pious than them.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
