Ask an Alim

is it allowed to work for shapewear selling retailer


I’m seeking advice/opinions from an Islamic perspective in order to make a decision in taking up a job opportunity that I’ve received from a company.

I’m a Google Analytics Specialist and I’ve been provided an opportunity by this company an online retailer selling shapewear and fitness products to assist with their website tracking and analysis requirements.

Please could you’ll take a look at the site and let me know from an Islamic perspective whether it’s acceptable/allowed to render my services to them considering the nature of the products they are selling on the site.

Your sincere opinions/advice will really help me to consider about this and making a decision after praying isthikara In Sha Allah. Jazakallahu Khairan.

According to Ayatollah Sistani, as long as there is no danger for yourself of falling into sin whether in looking at the products being sold or in interacting with the buyers if that happens or in any of the work that you do in relation to it, its ok for you to do this work.
