Working for a bank

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I’m looking for a job and I got an offer in at an Investment Banking. I didn’t know if I should accept it because I do not know if working in a bank is haram? Can I accept this job offer?

Bismillaah

A: The majority dealings of all conventional banks are in total contradiction with the laws of Shari’ah. Their main operation revolves around interest and usury. Hence one should refrain from taking employment in a bank.

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