Writing for a firm whose name is haram

As salamu alaikum,
There’s this exchange called Phemex. They state on thier website that their name (and a part of thier logo) is derived from two terms, ‘Pheme’ and ‘Mex’.


Pheme is a name for a deity in Greek mythology (audhubillah). I just wanted to know if working for such a firm whose name is derived from a haram source halal as long as I do not involve myself in any haram activity?

Would be much help and appreciated if this is clarified by @Mufti_Billal or @Mufti_Faraz_Adam like last time.

Jazakallah Khair!

Wa alaykum salaam,

I pray you are well.

Yes, it will be permissible to work in the company.

The name is not known among people for the falsehood and when the company name is taken, its usage has its own meaning (the company) as a noun for the company.

Therefore, it’s acceptable.

Allah knows best
