In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to work in an Islamic bank if one’s job does not involve anything haram. Since many financial institutions may falsely claim compliance with shari‘a, one should exercise due diligence when seeking employment in an Islamic bank.

And Allah Ta‘ālā Knows Best.
