Leaving Haram work.

When a person embraces Islam, they may be involved in a form of employment that is impermissible according to principles of Islam and jurisprudence (fiqh).

If you ever encounter a new Muslim in this situation, before you utter a word to them about leaving the impermissible (haram) form of employment, you’d better have some way to help them outside of just making a supplication (dua’a) for them.

We suggest that you help them strategize a plan to achieve employment in a permissible (halal) form of work. Find a job with a living wage. It’s not enough to give them advice and then leave them hanging.

That said we are reaching out to the community to help out. We do know of new Muslims in this predicament, so if you can employ them with a living wage please contact us.
