Taking out life Insurance in a foreign country

Q: I want to know about insurance. I live in Europe and majority of Muslims have life insurance. For example, if they die then the company will pay to transfer the body to their country. Is this a sin?

A: All forms of insurance are haraam.

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