    Should I quit my haram job?

    Hi everyone,

    I am a recent convert. I work at a supermarket and part of my job is selling alcohol and meat. I am using all of the money I make from this job to pay for my university course fees. I could not get student finance for this particular course so have to pay for it myself. I am worried that if I quit this job I would not be able to pay the university in time and would have to quit my course. I feel guilty going to work and feel within me that I shouldn't be doing it, especially that Ramadan is starting tomorrow. What do you think I should do? How bad is it to go to work during Ramadan?

      Should you quit your Haraam Job?

      the answer is in the question,

      Allah azzawajal is Ar-Razzaq, if you give up an evil for his sake, he will substitute it with something good.

      it's Shaytaan that puts the "What IF..." scenarios to deter/scare you from giving up this evil.

      Your earnings have to be Halaal, if not, in addition to this Haraam job, you will be using this dirty Haraam money for everything, your food, your clothing, shelter etc, and acquiring the La'na of Allah Azzawajal.

      Nauzubillah

        Perhaps request from your employer some exemption for the sale of alcohol or haram. Afterall in a large supermarket surely you can work in clothing or some other part?

        I remember i had a similar issue in a food factory when i was young. They also packed pork mix but i kept myself working on the potato lines etc.

          salaams to all

          quit ONLY when u have found another job.
          keep on looking for something else while you are still working & keep asking Allah ta'ala to give you something better.

          in the meantime avoid handling/dealing with haraam item as far as possible.


          and Allah ta'ala knows best
