Uber driver required to take out Insurance

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to work as an Uber driver? I heard that they require drivers to pay for insurance (third party property), which is not compulsory by Australian Law for private car owners. This type of insurance is a stipulated requirement of the Uber company only.


A: Avoid taking out the insurance.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
