Question

My husband is working in a company in Dubai. The owner of the company is a non-Muslim. Is it permitted to work in his company if he does not have any objection for the prayers, etc.

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. There is no objection to working with them provided one does not work with them in something that is forbidden such as selling pork, alcohol or looking after pigs, etc., or in anything that could strengthen those of them who fight Muslims or give them the ability to spread corruption in the land of Islam. It is also important that the Muslim takes the opportunity of his being among these people and to call them to Islam with wisdom and kindness showing the Islamic values in words, deeds, morals, transaction, etc. Allah knows best.
