Working for a bank

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to ask that can I do a job in the Bank? My Salary is not increment based but it is a fixed salary which will be only incremented after a year. My job title is Customer Care Representative. (I am only dealing with account opening and guiding the people to fill the forms) Please tell me that whether with the Islamic Point of View is it Halal or Haram? My bank Name is NIB bank which will soon be merged with Muslim Commercial Bank.


A: The main operation of a bank revolves around interest. Hence, you should not be in such an institute.

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