Finding a Halaal job

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I live in the UK and am in need of a job in order to pay off my loan. However, I cannot find a halal job despite continuously searching for one. If I don’t get a job, my loan amount will keep increasing. In this circumstance, is it permissible to work in clerical or I.T. related roles for haram companies (i.e. entertainment companies, banks, etc)?


A: There are many jobs that can be done at home. There are hundreds and thousands of people who earn their wealth in this way, though the amounts may not be so huge but expenses are easily met.

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