    Mega Thread of Halal and Haram Jobs + Discussion + Solutions

    Asslam-aleikum,

    Those who know me and following my previous threads, know that i am in the midst of starting my career. Just for a revival, i have recently completed my MBA and i am a born again Muslim (3 yrs ago). Now after completion of MBA, i find that it is very difficult to get a 100% Halal job in the corporate sector. I am very confused and very tensed over my career. I did my MBA in Human Resource and Information Technology but due to circumstances i can't go in either of the stream. HR Person has to do Payroll management which includes writing down Riba in the form of Employee provident fund and employee schemes. Regarding IT, i don't have any background in IT except my MBA degree so i can't get core IT jobs like IT project associate, what i am getting are marketing jobs for IT companies. I don't want to opt for marketing jobs because of the below given reasons : -

    I have always a geek and IT person(except programming), i love to do things technically but i don't have any degree in IT. I want to go into Hardware, Networking and System Admin domain

    My parents are telling to get a lecturer job in some MBA college for teaching HR subjects. My i never had a interest in HR, i just took it in my MBA because i had no other choice. :(

    Anyway, coming to my original question. Please guide me which career i should go for (i have my keen interest in IT - Anyone from System Admin, Network Admin side ? ) And these are career which are totally Haram or contain Haram content in it

    Please help me brothers and sisters. I am very desperate.

    Notes

    • I have not included the clause of mixing of sexes but that is next to impossible if you are living anywhere in the world outside KSA (or maybe some parts of Iran)
    • I have not included Haram transactions (for eg. It is Haram to sell any goods which you don’t personally possess)
    • Please keep on adding Haram Jobs in this list
    I have taken the Help of Islamqa.com to compile this list
    • The key principle of this is this Ayaat and Hadith

    “Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is Severe in punishment”

    al-Maa’idah 5:2

    AND

    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever calls others to guidance will have a reward like the rewards of those who follow him, without that detracting from their reward in any way. And whoever calls others to misguidance will have a burden of sin like the burden of those who follow him, without that detracting from their burden in any way.” Narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh (4832).

          22. Selling magazine, books, posters of Actor and Actresses and other Haram content in it
          How about newspapers? All newspapers today have pictures of actors/models in them.

          34. Male doctors treating female patients and vice-versa, unless in case of acute necessity
          What about the doctors who have set up their own private services? Should they just refuse to see female patients?

          36. Teaching man-made laws on governance and criminal justice
          Does this also mean is it not permissible to study law & work as a lawyer in a country which does not adopt the Shariah laws ?
