Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah wa baakatuh.
Is it permissible to work for a gambling software gaming company as a project manager for their internal IT system (Finance software)?
This wouldn’t be for the gambling software itself.
Wa ‘alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
I pray you are well.
Not Directly Assisting in Sin
According to Imam Abu Hanifa, this job would be permissible in and of itself, as you would not be directly assisting in sin, so the income from it would be halal. However, there is a difference in this amongst the other mujtahid imams, and consequently, it would be superior for you to seek employment elsewhere. (Maydani, al Lubab)
One of the wisdom of this is that frequent exposure to something wrong can erode its gravity from one’s perception, so it seems normal and inconsequential. Therefore, it’s better to avoid this situation if possible. Please see our archived answers on assisting in sin.
May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
