Compulsory insurance

Q: We have recently found out that medical aid and insurance are not permissible and cancelled ours. We have recently opened a tyre fitment centre. The department of labour have requested us to enter our staff on the system, we did plan on doing so however found out now that they have to have an insurance as their job here entails a risk so if we put them on the system they will be insured and if we don’t we could be in trouble with the department of labour.


A: If it is a compulsory requirement then insha-Allah you will not be sinful.

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