Working in a Conventional Bank

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: My friend and myself need some clarifications regarding working in commercial banks, insurance companies, governmental institutions in Mauritius (non-islamic state). We come across different opinions from various people.We have hence decided to seek the opinion of a Shaykh. We are both have degrees.  

A: Employment at a bank and such institutions should be avoided because of the interest factor at banks. If one is already working in a bank, then while still working there, alternate employment should be sought. As soon as another job becomes available, move on to the new job.
