Dear Mufti Sahab, My question is same as above. Can I work for an IT department in a bank. IT- Information Technology. Also kindly clarify regarding Question 7810 you had mentioned that muslims can work in south african banks.
There is a difference between the case mentioned in q7810 and your situation.
The difference is that one situation is when you have already worked in a bank and received salary, and the second is to seek employment in a bank. To work in a bank is not permissible, because you are aiding in Haraam, but in order to save the salary of a Muslim, we will assume that it has been paid from the Halaal portfolio of the bank. This does not mean that it is permissible to work in a bank. thus, it will not be permissible to work in the IT department of the bank.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
