Assalamualaikum,  I am from Madison WI . I recently looking for a job bcz I lost my previous job . In a gas station in Madison WI I maybe get a job over there but this gas station also sells lottery tickets to the customer. If I work over this gas station I also have to sell lottery tickets to the customer if they come to buy lottery tickets. Is it halal for me to work over there or not ?  Please let me know if I can work there or not ?

Thank you for your help may Allah reward for this .

The action which is Shar’an impermissible, its job is also impermissible. In the situation inquired about, if the job can be done without selling the impermissible things then this job will be permissible otherwise not.
