Q: Is it permissible for males to take a job at a place where it is compulsory for employees to wear a uniform (a company branded shirt and pants)? I do not refer to places where the work may require it, such as work overalls for a diesel mechanic or a painter. I ask regarding office jobs, retail, computer support, waiters in a restaurant etc. Muslim businesses also have these uniform requirements for Muslim staff.
A: As long as there are no pictures of animate objects and symbols of disbelief and transgression, it will be permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
