Muslim cashier scanning haraam items

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am working at a retail store as a cashier. The store also sells beer and pork and other meats… I only scan the item. Is my income haram?

I also have another job offer at a pizza restaurant that sells pizzas with toppings including chicken and bacon. Which is a better job for me? 

Bismillaah

A: Refuse to scan haraam items, and if for some reason you cannot then make taubah and istighfaar for this wrong.

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