Is Mortgage Broker License the right profession to choose?


As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh

Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم cursed the one who takes interest, gives interest, records it, and the one who witnesses it, and he said they are all the same. (Muslim)

عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ: لَعَنَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ آكِلَ الرِّبَا، وَمُؤْكِلَهُ، وَكَاتِبَهُ، وَشَاهِدَيْهِ وَقَالَ: هُمْ سَوَاءٌ (1598)

As a mortgage broker you will be involved in facilitating and finding interest bearing loans. Hence, it would not be permissible to work as a mortgage broker. Therefore you should opt for some other profession which does not have any involvement with interest (riba).
