Insurance for things stolen

Question ID: 28559

Muhtaram Mufti Saheb, Assalamu alaykum ww.
What is the ruling in the following case? May Allah reward you.
Zaid kept his money and valuables in the safe of Bakar in Bakar’s premises. Bakar’s premises were broken into by thieves. All Zaid’s money and valuables plus some of Bakar’s goods also got stolen. Zaid does not hold Bakar responsible because there was no negligence on his part.
But Bakar is insured and the insurance has paid him out for all that was stolen. Now Bakar wants to pay Zaid from the insurance monies he received, for the loss Zaid sustained. Is it permissible for Zaid to accept this money?
Awaiting your reply.
Your brother in Islam
