Job of presenting Haram food


An individual is offered a job for east midlands railway as first class customer service. The role is that if someone wants a haram sandwich he would go get it and put it on their table. Is this assisting in sin? He just needs to know about the job.


It is not allowed to do such a job according to the Shari’ah. It is absolutely haram to present a haram substance for the purpose of consumption to another person. It has been mentioned in the Noble Qur’an: (وَ لَا تَعَاوَنُوْا عَلَى الْاِثْمِ وَ الْعُدْوَانِ ) translation: And do not help one another in sin and injustice. [Surah al-Ma’idah, Verse:2] So whatever is haram to eat it is also haram to feed that to another person. There is absolutely no permission for such an act.
