Is it permissible to work in the workplace of a non-Muslim?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is religiously permissible for a Muslim to work in the workplace of a non-Muslim if he is not prevented from worshipping.  

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. (al-Fiqh 'alal-Madhahib al-Arbaa, III/125)
