It is a business to invest money in share market which is lawful with some conditions, while insurance is an interest based transaction, therefore unlawful. A business is lawful and interest is unlawful, as the Holy Quran said: أحل الله البيع وحرم الربوا (Allah has permitted sale, and prohibited riba/usury).
