Q: Is it okay to work in a gas station as a cashier, where liquor, lottery tickets, cigarettes, haram food, etc. are sold on an hourly basis?
A: It is not permissible to sell liquor, lottery tickets and haraam meat. Selling cigarettes is permissible. If you feel that you will be forced to sell the haraam items, then you should not accept the job.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
