Islamic ethos

Question ID: 18941

Assalamu alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, Sir, I came across a question and answer on your site the 11360 posted on 7/6/2014 in the category Business and work. Here the answer given by you was : “Take the job and then create an Islaamic ethos”
Here I want to ask what do you mean by islamic ethos? As far as I can understand that when not getting a job until then do not keep beard and do not wear pants below ankle as this might offend the company who would interview you. Once when you get a job then think of keeping a sharie beard and applying sharie ahkams on one-self. Is what I understand is correct or you mean someting else by ISLAMIC ETHOS.
Please clarify and state clearly.

Thanking you,
Jazzak Allah!

You have understood it wrong. Maintain your beard and pants above the ankles and get a job. After getting the job, display your Muslim character of honesty, honor, truthfulness, righteousness, regularity in Salaat, fair dealings, modesty, lowering the gaze, no interaction with females, etc. This is what is meant by 'Islaamic Ethos'.
