Q: I have a job opportunity as an IT contractor in a bank. I will be maintaining their computers and machines but I will not be working for the bank (they will not pay my salary). I will be paid by a company between the bank and I.
I wanted to know if it is Islamically permissible to work if the salary paid is not directly from the bank.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
