Working for a company that studies of fingerprints

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We run a DMIT company (dermatoglyphic multiple intelligence analysis). This is based on the science of dermatoglyphics (study of fingerprints) which reveals a person’s inborn brain lobe functions, diagnosis of psychological disorders, learning sensitivity, multiple intelligence, learning style, brain skills, personality traits etc based on study of finger ridges of an individual. Is it allowed in Islam to work for such a company?


A: If there is nothing haraam involved in this then it is permissible.

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