Q: I have a question regarding a job as a financial advisor. Is it permissible to be a financial advisor or haram if I am working in a financial institute and NOT the banking sector. I was studying financial advisor mutual fund, when I heard that working as a fianancial advisor in any sector is haram, so I left the study.
A: We do not know whether this institution revolves mainly around haraam or not.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
