Working for a Jewish auditing firm

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have recently been offered and accepted employment at a firm of auditors. Only now has it come to my attention that the partners of the firm are all Jewish. There are others working there who are of other religions. The firm is part of an international firm that isn’t Jewish. Working here would it be allowed and permissible?


A: It is permissible for you to accept the employment provided the work you are employed for is permissible and there is nothing impermissible associated with it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
