Serving Alcohol as Cabin Crew

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Can I work as a cabin crew on a plane? My friends say that this is haraam because you have to serve alcohol in the flight. I’m not serving them alcohol with my wish; this is my duty in flight nor am I giving them from my pocket. I am confused in it. Is there any way that it will be halaal to do this work or is this Haraam? Should I work as a cabin crew or search for another job?

A: Any type of relation with alcohol is not allowed. The Hadeeth mentions ten types of dealings with alcohol that is accursed. (Ibni Maajah).  Although not from your pocket, it is not permissible to serve alcohol. You should seek another job.
