Assalamualaikum, I have a query, is working in Software company, on a project of client which is mortgage bank permissible? I want reference from sahih hadees, please help me with this. Santander technology is the bank in this case.






In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful




Firstly, if the nature of the work/service is entirely unrelated to and free from interest (ribā), then such a job profile and work would be permissible. Thus, if any part of the project is associated with interest (ribā), such work will be impermissible. [1]


Secondly, it will only be permitted to take renumeration if half or more of the company’s income is from permissible sources.


It will not be permitted to receive renumeration if more than half of the company’s income is from impermissible sources. [2]


And Allah Ta’āla knows best

((عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ: ((لَعَنَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ آكِلَ الرِّبَا، وَمُؤْكِلَهُ، وَكَاتِبَهُ، وَشَاهِدَيْهِ)) ، وَقَالَ: ((هُمْ سَوَاءٌ


(صحيح مسلم، بَابُ لَعْنِ آكِلِ الرِّبَا وَمُؤْكِلِهِ)

Jābir [RA] reports that Rasūlullāh [ﷺ] cursed the one who eats interest, feeds interest, writes down interest, and witnesses interest.

He added that they are equal in sin. (Sahīh Muslim) 


وَكَاتِبَهُ وَشَاهِدَيْهِ): قَالَ النَّوَوِيُّفِيهِ تَصْرِيحٌ بِتَحْرِيمِ كِتَابَةِ الْمُتَرَابِيَيْنِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ عَلَيْهِمَا وَبِتَحْرِيمِ الْإِعَانَةِ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ) 

 (مرقاة المفاتيح، ج ٥، ص ١٩١٦، دار الفكر)

آكِلُ الرَّبَّا وَكَاسِبُ الْحَرَامِ أَهْدَى إلَيْهِ أَوْ أَضَافَهُ وَغَالِبُ مَالِهِ حَرَامٌ لَا يَقْبَلُ، وَلَا يَأْكُلُ مَا لَمْ يُخْبِرْهُ أَنَّ ذَلِكَ الْمَالَ أَصْلُهُ حَلَالٌ وَرِثَهُ أَوْ اسْتَقْرَضَهُ، وَإِنْ كَانَ   غَالِبُ مَالِهِ حَلَالًا لَا بَأْسَ بِقَبُولِ هَدِيَّتِهِ ...
