    Ruling on working in a casino


    AaQuestion

    What is the ruling on working in a casino, as I have no choice but to work there, but I am not pleased with this work and I am going to leave it soon, if Allah wills? In the event that I do leave this work, what is the ruling on the money that I have earned from this job? What if I am in need of this money that I have earned so that I can work in trading or some other work?.Answer
    Praise be to Allaah.

    Gambling is a major sin which Allah has forbidden in His Book, and He mentions the prohibition on it alongside the prohibition of alcohol. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), and gambling, and Al‑Ansaab (stone altars for sacrifices to idols etc), and Al‑Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.

    91. Shaytaan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allaah and from As‑Salaah (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:90-91]

    When Allah forbids a thing, He also forbids helping with it in any way.

    So it is not permissible to work in a casino because of what it involves of helping others in sin. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “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].

    Whatever money a person earns by working in a casino is haraam wealth, and it is not permissible for him to make use of it or to spend it on himself. What he has to do is get rid of this money by spending it on various charitable causes.

    You have to look for permissible means of earning halaal provision. If you leave this evil for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate you with good. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).

    3. And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine”

    [al-Talaaq 65:2-3]

    And Allah knows best.

    Wisdom behind the prohibition on gambling


    https://islamqa.info/en/answers/4013...on-on-gambling

    Question

    What is the wisdom behind the Islamic prohibition on gambling?

    Answer
    Praise be to Allaah.

    Gambling is haraam because Allaah has forbidden it, and He rules as He wills. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, al-Ansaab [sacrifices for idols, etc.] and al-Azlaam [arrows for seeking luck or decision] are an abomination of Shaytaan’s handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.

    Shaytaan wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drink) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allaah and from al-salaat (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?”[al-Maa’idah 5:90-91]

    With regard to the wisdom behind this prohibition, any wise person will see that there are many reasons for it, including the following:
    1. Gambling makes a person rely on accidents, luck and wishful thinking for his earnings, instead of hard work, the sweat of his brow and paying respect to the ways prescribed by Allaah.
    2. Gambling destroys families and causes the loss of wealth through haraam means. It makes rich families poor and humiliates proud souls.
    3. Gambling results in enmity and hatred among the players, because they are consuming one another’s wealth unlawfully and getting wealth unlawfully.
    4. Gambling turns people away from the remembrance of Allaah and from prayer, and pushes the players to have the worst of attitudes and habits.
    5. Gambling is a sinful hobby that wastes time and effort, and makes people get used to laziness and idleness. It stops the ummah from working and producing.
    6. Gambling pushes people to commit crimes because the one who is penniless wants to get hold of money in any way he can, even if he has to steal it or take it by force, or through accepting bribes and cheating.
    7. Gambling causes stress, illness and nervous breakdowns. It breeds hatred and in most cases leads to crime, suicide, insanity and chronic illness.
    8. Gambling pushes the gambler to bad behaviour such as drinking alcohol and taking drugs. The atmosphere in which gambling takes place is dimly lit and filled with cigarette smoke; people talk in hushed voices and whispers, and sneak in and out as if they are up to no good. They come in hesitantly, filled with suspicion, and gather around the green table, breathing uneasily and with their hearts pounding. They are supposed to be friends playing a game, but in reality they are enemies, each of them lying in wait for the other and trying to make gains at the expense of the other and his children. The owner of the place tries to numb the feelings of all participants by offering dreamy music, fallen women, all kinds of drinks and cigarettes. The green table is surrounded with cheating and deception. The waiters and girls may tell one player about another player’s cards, helping one player to beat another by means of nods and whispers. Sometimes they achieve a kind of balance to make sure the game carries on and people stay for longer. No doubt everyone loses in the end, they lose the money they spend on drinks and cigarettes, the money they give to the waiters, the money they spend on drinks for the girls, and all kinds of other losses. Even the one who wins all or most of the games loses all or most of his winnings, and the loser loses everything. And at the end of the night, they all sneak away, showing the signs of depression and humiliation, and the loser warns the winner to look out the next day.
    (Ahmad Shalabi, al-Hayaat al-Ijtimaa’iyyah fi’l-Tafkeer al-Islami, p. 241)

    How many families have become poor because of gambling? How many mouths have gone hungry, how many bodies have become naked or been clothed in nothing but rags? How many marriages have failed, how many jobs have been lost, because of a person who stole money to support his gambling habit? How many men have sold their religion and honour at the gambling table? Gambling destroys everything, even when the aim is money. It includes wine, smoking, bad company, darkness, confusion, cheating, hatred, watching for opportunities to take advantage of others, deception and all other kinds of evil.

    (Qadaayaa al-Lahw wa’l-Tarfeeh, p. 388)

    We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound.

    Re: Employment in a Gambling industry

    Salaam,

    Thank you for all your insights. Now, even with being associated with anything gambling is haraam. However, where I will be working is in a call centre with decent people, I have been there for an interview. And there is no alcohol or anything of the sort because it is not in a casino. So is that still considered to be gambling? I am just taking calls and typing in what people tell me and that is it. I do not give suggestions or comment on anything.

    Jazak Allah Khair, i respect every reply I have gotten to my question. And I will follow my religion InshaAllah.

    Just another question though, this is not a job in a casino. It is within a call centre and I am meant to type down numbers in the system for people betting on horses or a team in a game.. I know that is still gambling but I am not around alcohol or anything.

    be patient and a better job will come along inshallah. i know how it is, i was out of work for over a year, going to several interviews but no good outcome. I have always noticed those jobs working in casino or betting shops, banks but have never been tempted as I know sooner or later a good halal job will come my way inshallah and it did. you should consider training yourself up in a particular field like IT, Law etc. be patient and keep trying. please read:

    Ruling on working in a casino

    What is the ruling on working in a casino, as I have no choice but to work there, but I am not pleased with this work and I am going to leave it soon, if Allah wills? In the event that I do leave this work, what is the ruling on the money that I have earned from this job?

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Gambling is a major sin which Allah has forbidden in His Book, and He mentions the prohibition on it alongside the prohibition of alcohol. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), and gambling, and Al‑Ansaab (stone altars for sacrifices to idols etc), and Al‑Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.

    91. Shaytaan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allaah and from As‑Salaah (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:90-91]

    When Allah forbids a thing, He also forbids helping with it in any way.

    So it is not permissible to work in a casino because of what it involves of helping others in sin. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “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].

    Whatever money a person earns by working in a casino is haraam wealth, and it is not permissible for him to make use of it or to spend it on himself. What he has to do is get rid of this money by spending it on various charitable causes.

    You have to look for permissible means of earning halaal provision. If you leave this evil for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate you with good. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).

    3. And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine”

    [al-Talaaq 65:2-3]

    And Allah knows best.

    Employment in a Gambling industry

    Salaam brothers and sister,

    I know this is the most silliest question ever, but please be kind as to not be aggressive.
    Living in Sydney has become very expensive (not that its a good reason for me to be doing this), but I have been looking for work and I have managed to get an interview for a company that handles people's bets. I will be in the call centre taking inbound calls and placing people's bets.
    I was just wondering.. this is haram to do and the money I earn and the things I use it for are all considered to be haram yes?

    Do forgive me for sounding like an idiot.. I do want to do the right thing and I am asking and confirming with you. Please give me some advice :)
