Working in a Conventional Bank Data Center

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulihsan.com

For now our data centre is located in the same building of the bank and will be moved to a different building soon. All in all, the conventional bank owns the data centre, so can I work here?  Should I quit and find a job or find a job and then quit? Please advise.

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh
Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa
A.As your work entails providing services for the conventional division as well, you should either request that your duties be restricted to providing services for the Islamic Banking Unit or alternatively seek alternate employment. If indeed you are to leave this employment, my advice is that you first seek alternate employment prior to leaving this job.
