Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. Please help us to find the right way in our life. I am a software engineer working for a software company. The focus of our software company is banking field and most of the clients are banks. The problem I am facing now is that the project that I am working is for banking software and the bank that I am working is not Islamic bank. The software that I develop or involved is used by the Bank to open account on-line through internet,applying on-line application for credit card, to view the Interest rates on internet for checking account, saving account and fixed deposits, etc.. I ask you to guide me whether doing work for a bank is haram (unlawful) even though I am not directly working for the bank and salary is given by my company, not the Bank. Jazakum Allah khayran.
All of your activities mentioned above are related to bank, working for a bank is helping in sin. The income earned through it is not pure.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
