Working in Internet cafe
Fatwa No: 82315


I'm working in a cyber cafe, I didn't do wrong things, but whoever comes goes to wrong sites: We used to sell CDs of kinds like films, songs, software etc. My boss is just Muslim he do wrong things or may be shrik. I have to work there or quit or wait for another job?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
Everyone who is employed for work and he knows that his employer will use him for achieving an illegal act, then he should not accept that work. Because the rules which apply to the goals, apply to their means too. Any means conducting to a forbidden thing or to a sin is forbidden itself without any doubt. Allah Says: (interpretation of the meaning):{Help you one another in Al­Birr and At­Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment}.[5:2]. Allah knows best.
