Working to Build a Cigarette Factory?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Are we allowed to work for a construction firm which is building a cigarette factory?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Wa`alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate

Your work itself is permissible, so your earnings themselves will be permitted. Doing such work would not be considered ‘assisting in sin’, because the sin does not relate directly to your work. For details, see the links below.
