Is it permissible to work in a bank in the fraud advisory or fraud analyst areas ?
Is it permissible to work in a bank in the fraud advisory or fraud analyst areas, where you are not involved with the finance/interest related area/department of banking? Some say it's not permissible to even be a security guard at a bank, yet the service of banks is something we all use and cannot stay away from today; even if one refrains from accounts and services which involve interest, we are still using the bank's services. Hence, to what extent are we allowed flexibility in its involvement in terms of employment; can one work in the fraud-related departments of banks? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
As long as the occupation in reference does not entail committing a sin or assisting in it, e.g. involvement with interest, then it would be permissible to have such a job. Fatawa Usmani: v. 3, 395-396 (Maktaba Maariful Quran Karachi) Only Allah knows best Written by Maulana Mohammad Ahsan Osmani
