Q: My cousin has done diploma in civil engineering. Recently he got a job in a bank, where his duty includes monitoring the construction, maintenance and repair of bank’s buildings. Is his income halaal or haraam? Can I eat something he offers when I visit his place?
A: As far as we understand, the main operation of a bank revolves around interest. Hence, he should not be in such an institute.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
