Asalamu Alikum warahmatu Allahi wabarakatu

InshaAllah I will move this to the Islamic rulings forum and your question can be answered.

[marq=left:cdd8b6a8e9]Question #11349: He has been offered a job in a bank that deals in riba (interest)  

[font=Times New Roman:cdd8b6a8e9]
Question :

I am working in a software development house. Recently I was offered by the company to go to XXX for on a one year contract. I showed my willingness to them. But after few days I was told that I will have to work for XXX Bank. I know its Haram to work for an interest based organization like a bank. Someone told me that in XXX there are some banks that do Islamic banking. I dont have much information about the bank. I have submitted some queries at some places but so far I havent received any reply. Can you please advise me whether I should work for XXX Bank or not as most probably they would be dealing with Interest based banking and I will be helping them in their job.

Answer :

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is as you say. The bank you mention does deal in riba (interest). We advise you to keep away from working there. We ask Allaah to give you strength and to help us and you adhere steadfastly to His religion.
