Working for the Department for International Trade as a software engineer?

Is it permissible to program a system used to facilitate trade partnerships for the UK’s Department for International Trade? I do not know what the nature of these trades will be and in theory this system may be used to strike deals with foreign alcohol companies for example.

Assalaamu alaykum,

What type of program will it be?

Walaykum assalam,
It will be a customer relationship management program with performance management and analytical reporting. This would allow them to record and track the deals they make. I do not yet know if I will be handling any of the information that will be present in their database.

Assalaamu alaykum,

If its purely customer relationship management, then in and of itself, it is not an issue.

Allah knows best
