JOB ENVIRONMENT

Q. In the environment I am working, I am in the midst of females. Speaking and interacting with them is unavoidable. What is the status of this job?
A. Your job is haraam. It is incumbent to find other work. It is not permissible to cast yourself in a zina environment. Rizq has been predetermined and it is sealed. Rasulullah ( S a l l a l l a h u a l a y h i wasallam) said:
“Earning a halaal rizq is the obligation after the Fardh Salaat.” The Mashaaikh say: “Upon us is the obligation to worship Him as He has commanded, and on Him is the obligation to feed us as He has promised.” Allah Ta’ala has not ordained haraam avenues for searching rizq. In this dunya trials must be expected. You are obliged to search for halaal employment. If you earnestly search and make dua, a halaal avenue will open up. Settling for a haraam job is a defeatist attitude which signifies disbelief in the Promise and Commands of Allah Ta’ala. Make a genuine search for halaal rizq and accept a halaal opportunity even if the wage is substantially lower. After the trial and submission to Allah’s Law, He will open up further and better avenues. Your job-environment is satanic. Your akhlaaq are imperceptibly being ruined
and your Imaan is being tarnished in the immoral haraam environment.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “If you have tawakkul (trust) on Allah in the true meaning of the term, He will feed you as He feeds the birds. They emerge from their nests hungry, and they return fully satiated.”
