Working in a bank

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Im working in a corporate bank. But I dont deal with interest. My work is related to preparing letters and written off and some back end work. I do not come under getting or giving or calculating or witnessing interest. But the bank pays me. Is this halal or haram?


A: A bank’s main operation is interest. Hence, working at a bank is impermissible.

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