Travel Agent

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is a job as a travel agent permissible. This job might require one to book a ticket that contains haraam food. E.g. I book a plane ticket for a person and order haraam food for him. So is this permissible?

A: The travel agent’s duty is to reserve the seat. Thereafter the passenger selects the type of food he wants.
