Designing a church

Q: I have been asked this question by a friend of mine:

A friend of mine needs help and I don’t really have the idea. He is an architect and he was awarded a contract to design a church. Can he accept the contract?


A: It is not behoving for a Mu’min to design a church.

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﴾
