Question

Alsalam alykomi am a mechanical engineer working as a designer of air conditioning systems for any type of building .My question is : is it haram to design the air conditioning system for a central bank?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The central bank has many functions, including what is permissible and what is forbidden. It is not like the Riba-based commercial banks, whose activities are primarily based on Riba.

The existence of Central Banks is essential as they are the ones who issue money and keep (save) the country's reserves of gold, foreign currencies and other necessary services.

Therefore, providing any lawful service, such as designing air conditioning system and other things in which a person does not engage in something forbidden, or directly help in it, is permissible.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 127388, 358819, 83279 and 141008.

Allah knows best.
