Is serving pork in Burger King Harām?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I work at a Burger King for my job and job is serving food and some of the food has pork so I was wondering if it is Haram or not.


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

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’āla says in the Quran:

{وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ} [المائدة: 2]

“And assist in righteousness deeds and piety, but do not assist in sin and aggression”

(Al-Maidāh 2)

Pork is Harām and prohibited in Islam. Therefore, the consumption, transportation and serving of pork are all Harām. When one serves pork, he is assisting others in consuming that which is Harām regardless whether the consumer is a muslim or a non-muslim.

However, you should exert yourself in searching for a Halāl income. If you are unsuccessful in that and you have no other source of income, you will be excused for working at Burger King. While working there, make taubah and Istigfār and also search for an alternative income which is Halāl.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
