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.
- Would it be permissible to earn money by helping in hiring warehouse workers for this type of organization? (Amazon, Shipt, FedEx, Martin Brower)
- 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)
