Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: It has come to my attention that my father pays home and car insurance. Is it permissible to make use of a car that insurance is been paid on? e.g. to use the car to go for Salaah, to do necessary shopping etc. Is it permissible to live in a house that insurance is been paid for?


A: Yes


If you are able to explain to your father that insurance in impermissible, then you should explain to him.

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