Earning from takaaful insurance


1. Is the earning from takaaful insurance clearly stated as haraam?

2. If such a person invites a friend for a dinner party at his home, will it be halaal for him to consume such type of food?


1. Up to this point we do not find a difference between takaaful and conventional insurance. Just changing words around does not make a haraam into permissible.

2. If he is going to feed the friend mainly from this type of a wealth then the friend should kindly excuse himself.

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