I would just like to know your thoughts on taking health insurance from your company (given that you have to pay a part of it). I know we are all mujtahids here.
From what I know the default ruling on insurance contracts is that they are haram given that there is an element of doubt in them (meaning you do not really know what you are buying or the exact amount of what you are paying for).
But given the high cost of health care (especially in the US), would this count as dururua (expiation because of hardship)?
Jazak Allah khair for any insight.
