Life insurance

Q: Can a Muslim use death insurance money and what can it be used for? For example if someone gives me that money, what can I do with it?

A: The amount paid to the insurance company can be regained and the extra amount should be given to the poor in charity without the intention of receiving any reward.

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