When the hijab ban in france came about muslims, righfully, threw a big fuss.
Then we had certain scholars like Shaikh tantawi been heavily criticised by other ulema (and righfully so) for his verdict that due to the non muslim law of the land the rules of hijab could be relaxed.
However, many of these very same other ulema state that although insurance is haraam due to elements of gambling and interest, due to the law of the land, 3rd party (i.e minimum) insurance for things such as cars (where 1 is not allowed to drive without insurance) is allowed due to the law of the land.
this is a clear contradiction in principle as far as i can see. Why can the hijab not be relaxed due to law of the land but when it comes to insurance many ulema relax it? (please note i am not saying hijab should be relaxed, i am totally aginst it and totally against Shaik tantawis fatawa, im simply saying how come insurance has been relaxed)?
May Allah reward you.
