Answer

If it is difficult to find a job and you have to support your family and
dependants, you should continue with the present employment and search for
an alternate employment suitable to your skills. However, in doing so, you
should place your religious obligations first.

You should avoid undertaking an employment wherein you will be compromising
on your religious values and principles.
