Respected Muftie Saheb,
Assalamu alaikum.

Is it permissible to buy a life insurance policy not to let my heirs benefit from it; but merely to cover inheritance tax/estate duty that is so exorbitant that, due to not having so much cash funds in the estate, essential assets such as the house in which the heirs live in has to be sometimes sold just to pay the estate duty. The heirs will be instructed that after paying the duty the surplus must be given away in charity without intention of reward.

Jazakallah.
Wassalaam.
