Working In A Hotel Where Tenants May Commit Sins
Fatwa No: 414223

Question

Assalamu alaikum
What is the ruling of being only an accountant, not an administrator of an hotel with rooms that anybody can take for rent who has ID card, sometimes people may take room for fornication, drinking liquor etc?

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.

If the hotel is renting rooms for permissible purposes, but some people rent rooms and then drink alcohol and commit Zina (fornication or adultery) without the knowledge of the hotel officials; then there is nothing wrong with you in working in the hotel as an accountant or manager.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 82250 and 308935.

Allah Knows best.
