Ruling on Creating an Engineering Design for a Conventional Bank

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
What is the ruling on creating an engineering design for the facade of a conventional bank?

Answer:
Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

Works that facilitate usurious transactions of conventional banks are unlawful. However, your (Asker) creating engineering designs for those banks doesn`t directly facilitate their usurious transactions. Therefore, you aren`t to blame for that work, and the money you earn from it is lawful.

Nonetheless, we recommend that you avoid working for thos banks since whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will substitute him with something better. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
