Reference my previous question # 6433. You need more detail. There are several projects funded by UNICEF, UNHCR, UNDP, World Bank, USAID etc. are running in Pakistan. The purpose of these projects is the development of Pakistan. The funds are mainly used in Health, Education, and Social Sector. Most of these projects are under loan agreement and heavy mark up is involved on the Government level. My question is based on the fact that the sources of these funds are unknown. These funds may be generated through interest by the western countries. I hope you can understand the question.
You have raised the issue of ‘source of funds’ for these projects. From that
angle we do not see any problem. It would be permissible for you to provide
a service, and receive remuneration from any of these organisations. This
will apply even though they may have acquired their funds through interest.
However the aspect which has to be considered is the type of service that
you are going to provide. There is no hiding the fact that all the
organisations mentioned by you are involved in projects designed to destroy
Islam and the Muslims. They have sinister agendas in even the charitable
works that they are doing. By you providing them your services, you will be
aiding them in sin. The Qur’aan states: “And do not assist one another in
sin and rebellion”.
If however, the particular service you provide them with does not promote
their evil objectives, then you may undertake such projects for them. In
such a case too, it would be better to abstain.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
