Working as a 3rd party recruiter to bring applicants for Companies like Amazon, FedEx, etc

I do freelancing for a US-based recruiting company from Bangladesh. They work to recruit staff for various mainstream US companies.
I am paid on a commission basis, which is the number of people who signup as an applicant for the job from my link. I have the freedom to choose which company I advertise for or bring applicants for. So, I do not bring any applicant for any Riba-based institution (Such as bank or insurance) and therefore, I do no earn from them. I also earn by hiring for tech companies or health companies, which I do not have any confusion about. Now, The majority of my earning comes from hiring warehouse workers for the following companies:
(Amazon, Shipt, FedEx, Martin Brower)
As you know, these companies sell all items of daily use from food to groceries. From a general understanding, there are haram products in these super shops. It is not certain what percentage of haram products exist in these stores, but it’s most likely to be around 10% or less. And, most of the people who buy the haram products are kafirs, and haram products are usually bought by kafirs. However, Muslims also shop from those stores and they also work as salesman or warehouse workers in these stores. It should also be noted that some Islamic scholars (of the Hanafi school) did not term the working of salesman/warehouse workers in such companies as Haram. Because most of the total income does not come from haram.

  1. Would it be permissible to earn money by helping in hiring warehouse workers for this type of organization? (Amazon, Shipt, FedEx, Martin Brower)
  2. Would it be permissible to earn money by helping in hiring deliverymen for Ubereats or cashier/server for restaurants who do not sell halal meats & might sell alcohol as well? (Note: Sometimes it cannot be sure from the internet information about whether or not a company operates fully in Halal product)

Jazakallahu Khairan.

Link for four similar fatwas I found on the internet:



May Allah bless you.

I have not red your question fully yet. Neither I have checked the links you posted. But just of curiosity, is there anything lacking from these fatwas that you did not find an answer? :slightly_smiling_face:

Kind regards

Yes, Respected Mufti,
These fatwas don’t provide the exact answer to my question. As I don’t have an exact answer, I am not sure whether I should do it or not.
These fatwas tell whether or not working on those posts is allowed and there are different regarding that. But, my question is working as a recruiter(Bringing job applicants) for those posts is allowed or not.

So, I didn’t find an answer because:

  1. I cannot derive a Fatwa from another Fatwa. Because In Islamic Fiqh (As far as I have known/heard), only Mufti (i. e Scholars with Ijazah for issuing fatawa) can do that.
  2. There is a difference of opinion in the Fatawas I mentioned as well. So, I would like to know yours opinion and IFG"s opinion on this.
    Jazakallahu Khairan

@Mufti_Billal and @Mufti_Faraz_Adam Respected Muftis, Assalamu Alaykum. I am eagerly waiting to know the opinion of both of you on this question.
Jazakallahu Khairan

There is not issues to act as a 3rd party recruiter for the companies you have mentioned.

@Mufti_Billal and @Mufti_Faraz_Adam Respected Muftis, Assalamu Alaykum.

Unfortunately, we cannot review every single company in details.
My suggestion is that you rephrase your question and instead of listing companies by names, list them by the sector and service they provide. For example Uber Eats service is based on ordering and delivering food.
Once you give us this list, we can then try giving you a generic answer which will help to make the assessment by yourself as to whether it is halal to recruit for x company or not.

Assalamu Alaykum, Shaykh @Mufti_Billal and @Mufti_Faraz_Adam.
