Working for a company that maintains haraam websites

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I work in an IT company where they monitor and maintain the server of a website. That is we take care of all their backend and frontend problems and manage them according to the client requirements. Now the company has many websites which is haram like games of rummy played for real money and haram entertainment websites. The company also has good educational website. Is it permissible for me to work in this company and is it my earning halaal where I have to monitor and manage all these websites and make the website run smoothly irrespective of being halaal and haraam?


A: Part of your work is not right i.e. the work that relates to games etc.

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