Question ID: 30341


According to hanafi mathab it is Makrooh to work for a riba institution. Am i correct then to say that if one does not make the effort to find halaal rizq and by prolonging one’s employment at a riba institution, one’s rizq becomes haraam?
Please see below response:

. I work in an insurance company, please let me know if it is haram?
Assalmu `alaikum Warahmatullhi Wabrakatuh,

Conventional insurance schemes are prohibited as they have interest, gambling and uncertainty (gharar) in them, all of which are prohibited. Working for an insurance scheme will therefore fall in the category of assisting in sin. Allah Taala says:

And do not assist in sin
(Quran 5:2)

Furthermore, the salary for services rendered to an insurance scheme will not be halaal as the payment will be from a haram source.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best,

Try to get another job. Meanwhile do not regard you income as Haraam.
