A meeting of Islamic organizations have come out against health insurance saying that benefits of health insurance is akin to gambling. They have termed health insurance illegal and have asked Muslims to keep away from such plans. The Islamic Fiqh Academy (India), 300 Madrasas including the Darul Uloom Deoband and Jamiat Islami interpreted health insurance as a noble service turned into a business activity.

The Fiqh Academy made an exception - if a person had insured himself/herself under some legal constraints, he/she could then consider its benefits provided he/she spent the left-over amount of the health insurance claim in some form of service to Allah.

The Ulema suggested that the community could itself organise services to help in the treatment of poor.
