Is it allowed for someone who becomes a revert to take money from life insurance that is been left by his/her brother or family member who is not Muslim?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




The inheritance which is left by a non-Muslim relative this person is living in a non-Islamic  state and the money is distributed according to their methods by which the money received is considered as a gift from the government it will be permissible, however, if the money is distributed according to the Islamic method it will not be permissible to inherit from a Non-Muslim relative as the Prophet mentioned that “The Muslim does not inherit the disbeliever nor does the disbeliever inherit the Muslim.”[1]



Only Allah knows best
