I live in karachi, pakistan,
Mufti Sahab my question is about Meezan Bank, I am jobless at the moment and searching for job, In previous week i got the job offer from Meezan Bank. I did not want to work in bank but my friend says that Meezan Bank is islamic. I also informed that Mufti taqi usmani sahab are also in sharia bord of Meezan Bank. I want your guideline so i could decide what to do to
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
There are two issues in your query:
2) The Bank being Shariah Compliant.
If you are jobless and you have no alternative then you may work at the bank regardless of the Shariah Compliancy of the bank.
You may enquire from Mufti Taqi Uthmani Saheb (db) directly about the bank. If it is not compliant with Shariah, then you may continue working there until you find an alternative job.
And Allah knows best
