I am not convinced with the Islamic bank deals


I am working in an Islamic Bank but I am not convinced as the Islamic bank deals with other Banks working on interest/Riba. Is it permissible to work with such an Islamic bank.


Salam alaykum,

Thank you for your question.

According to the office of Ayatullah al-Udhmah Sistani, if a bank conducts illegal (haram) transactions, its still ok to work in the bank as long as you work in the part of bank that doesn’t deal in impermissible transactions, if such a portion exists therein. I hope that helps. Thanks again for your question.
