Is this job halal?

Salaam team,

I am a Learning & Development(L&D) Specialist and recently a company offered me a freelancing gig. This company is a 3rd party contractor and the gig was for a Non Sharia compliant bank. While my initial position is that any work done for a haraam bank client is haraam, i want to check with the you (the scholars). My L&D work isnt haraam but is doing L&D work for a Non Sharia Bank client haraam? I recently lost my halal job and this gig has come up now - hence I want to check before i reject/accept it.

Jazak Allah Khair,
Mohamed Ajmal

Wa alaykum salaam, what exactly do you offer?

Salaam Mufti Faraz Adam. I built online training modules which was used by the bank. I was contracted by a 3rd party contractor who hired me for this gig. The online module was to train the bank employees on how to use a new system which was replacing the old system. This system was for ID management of all staff.

Wa alaykum salaam,

This is a generic form of education which is fine to deliver and earn an income from.

Allah knows best

Assalamu alaykum Shaik, I live in India, I work for a multinational company (Deloitte) my work involves providing project management services (to check number of employees of Deloitte deployed on a project, the amount of discount Deloitte should offer to the client, sending invoiced to the client, running reports and analysis to see the profitability of the project) these clients can sometimes be banks, entertainment based, gaming based and alcohol based companies, is my income from this job halal? Also recently I received a government job offer to work as a bailiff for a civil court…can a muslim work as a bailiff?

Wa alaykum salaam,

I would recommend speaking to a local scholar as I’m not aware of the context and mechanics of Indian Bailiffs.

Allah knows best
