Working for a video company or working as an estate agent

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

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?

Bismillaah

A:

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.
