Working as an insurance broker

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is insurance broker living halaal in North America? Should Muslims go to that Profession?


A: Insurance is haraam as it contains the elements of gambling and interest in it. Working for such a company is impermissible as one will be involved in haraam. Hence, the income earned through such an occupation is haraam.

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