Work for investment bank

Salam Alikum,

I currently work at Deutsche Bank part of electronic trading support helping support different trading components like market data publisher (getting instruments from exchange and sending to trader), and order quoting and order processing components.

As far as I know, we support Equities, FX, and some Rates. The rates in specific are majorly government bonds, derivatives, commodities, and futures. I do not trade or decide on what is traded - only helping support these different components by troubleshooting issues with components, upgrading, or deploying new components.

My question for the muftis - is my income halal? I have been thinking about this for a while but thought difficult to get an answer. I like my job but at same time have to make sure it’s halal otherwise will start exploring options for elsewhere.

Thank you,


May Allah bless you.
