Is it halal (legitimate) to work in a Jewish (non-Muslim) company?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

If the company you work for deals with halal works, it is permissible to work there.

If a Muslim serves an unbeliever, that is, if he serves that unbeliever himself, it is makruh tanzihi according to the reliable view. However, if he works in an unbeliever’s field, factory, in agriculture and business, it is not regarded makruh. (1).

Thus, it is not advisable for a Muslim to serve a non-Muslim himself but it is not haram. However, it is permissible to work in the workplace of a non-Muslim.
