Is life insurance? How wrong?

00:00:06--> 00:00:45

When it comes to Sharia rulings in business transactions, it's very important to identify what exactly is being sold in terms of a product or a service when it comes to insurance, that is where that gray line is, what is the product or service that is being provided by the insurance company? Now, when you look at insurance, it is built upon probability, what is the likelihood of a catastrophe taking place, and therefore, we will compensate you based upon that damage.
