Funeral cover

Q: Is funeral cover permissible in Islam?

A: Funeral cover is not permissible on account of it being an insurance plan. In all insurance schemes and contracts, the elements of gambling and interest are found. Hence, it is not permissible for one to take out funeral cover.

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