Working for an insurance company

Q: Is people who are working in L.I.C (life insurance corporation), their income is halal or haram?

A: Insurance is haraam as the elements of gambling and interest are found in it. Hence, the wealth earned through insurance is impermissible.

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