Halal and Haram
My question is related to work issues. Would it be haram (forbidden) to work in international organizations like USAID even if what the person is doing is totally halal (lawful)?In other words, is working in a project that handles training but is financed by USAID money halalor haram, in the sense that an organization like USAID has political motives other than helping developing countries? Should the person be concerned in himself only and what his job description is, or would it be crucial to look at the bigger picture concerning the whole world politics?
As-Salamu `alaykum. I work in a store whe re lottery tickets and pork sandwiches are sold. Due to my circumstances, it’s hard for me to find another job. Is it permissible to work there?
Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. Some people say that, in order to regard a certain thing as forbidden, it should be mentioned by name in the Qur’an. They even apply this to things whose names have been changed to modern names. If they are told such-and-such is forbidden, they reply “Bring us a Qur’anic text that states so explicitly.” Moreover, they claim that forbidding things is a right peculiar to Almighty Allah alone, and nobody is ever entitled to such a right. So, according to them, if a certain thing is not mentioned by name in the Qur’an as forbidden, it is to be regarded as permissible. I would like to know if it is really true that in order for a certain thing to be judged as forbidden, it must be mentioned explicitly as so in the Qur’an. Jazakum Allah khayran.
