Dr. Monzer Kahf, Scholar in Islamic Economics and a financial expert, states the following: “Working as real estate agent or appraiser is permissible, even if one knows that the buyer is going to use conventional interest-based mortgage. That is not of our business, we are only helping in the sale/purchase of the real estate properties.”
Moreover, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, President of the Fiqh Council ofNorth America, adds:
“A Muslim can work as a real estate agent for both Muslims and non-Muslims. There is nothing wrong in this profession. You should help people to find good homes for purchase, but do not get involved in the un-Islamic ways of borrowing money for purchase. In this job, a Muslim should be sincere with his customers and not to hesitate to inform them about the halal ways of buying homes.
