Parents who are non-Muslims supplying one medication through their medical insurance

Q: I have a question regarding my current situation. I am a full time student at a madersah and I have a mental disability. I am a revert and my parents (who are non muslims) fund my medication. I just recently remembered that they have health insurance and that they have been using it. I was aware of it this whole time but I totally forgot it was harram. In my case, is it possible to continue this or should I stop taking medication from them?


A: Since they are non-Muslims, they have no shar`ee obligations. Hence, whatever kindness or generosity they show to you, you may accept it.

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