Why do you have to put the word "Muslim" in the title of this thread?
We all know Muslims are socialists. Why would they want to opt out of Obama Care?
In this regards, al-Zarka adds, that if a mutual or cooperative insurance exists he prefers it to profit motivated insurance out of his respect to the opinion of opponents. There is an old argument (from the 1950s), even by those who oppose insurance, that whenever insurance is forced by law, one must do it and one is excused, from the Shari'ah point of view. This include car insurance, social security, workman compensation, and employer's imposed insurance if it is not optional for the employee to this we add another element that if the insurance provided by the employer is paid completely from the employer, i.e., given as a fringe benefit without deducting any part of the premium from the pay checks, then it is a kind of grant from the employer and if a hazard happens the paid policy amount is halal because it is an outcome of the grant.
I just heard on the radio that Muslums will have the option to "opt out" of Obama Care without penalty.... WHAT!? How is it right to force MANY people into a program they don't want, but let others opt out?
Seems about as right as insisting that employers allow Christian medical providers and pharmacists to opt out of participating in some medical procedures and services due to their religious beliefs.
