Assisting in evil and sin


  1. I am working virtually (from Pakistan) for an Irish Solicitors firm. I listen and type their dictations. They have all kind of cases including same sex marriage, family, employment etc. Is my job halaal?
  2. I have a job offer from a US based marketing company where I have to assist them in setting up their marketing campaigns. The campaigns I have to work on include financing, insurance, loans, mortgages, dating etc. Mostly my working is copying and pasting information/data from one system to another but at one step I have to visit different websites and decide which one is better for their advertisements to display on. Can I work for them?



  1. We advise that you look for another source of employment.
  2. As above.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ ﴿المائدة: ٢﴾
