(Fatwa: 73/73/M=1432)

(1) According to Shariah, Life Insurance Policy is haram and unlawful; because it involves interest and gambling. It is unlawful to spend the interest earned through it in one's personal use. It should be given in charity to the poor and needy ones without the intention of reward. However, the capital amount is halal. In the question mentioned above the property of deceased person، after due rights preceding inheritance, shall be divided into 64 shares. Each wife shall get 4-4 shares, each son 14-14 shares, and each daughter 7-7 shares.

Wife: 2x4 08
Son: 3x14= 42
Daughter: 2x7= 14

Total: 64 Shares

(2) The share of daughter may be spent in her marriage if she permits the same.

Note: The ruling shall differ if the parents of the deceased person are alive. If so, submit the question again.

Allah knows Best!
