Working for a video company or working as an estate agent

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been a home executive for 9 years and want to assist with the income of the household. Please advise if it is permissible Islamically to work for: 1) a photography/video company 2) as a real estate agent as I have a qualification which I never used. I am worried about the interest factor. Are we indirectly encouraging interest and loans? Should I rather consider business (selling) or a profession in cupping?



1. It is not permissible.

2. Yes. It is permissible.
As long as you are not involved in the interest operation nor did you ask him to take a loan on interest your work is permissible.

Do that which your elders and your heart guides you to.

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