I.T Technician Job
Assalamualikum Mufti Sahab,
JazakaAllahu Khair for taking my question, I would like to ask you if it is OK to work in IT for a Payment Processing Company that delivers credit/debit/prepaid card processing, payroll, check management and payments solutions, to more than 250,000 business locations nationwide. More information about this company can be obtained at its website on http://www.heartlandpaymentsystems.com/
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Since the primary function of a Payment Processing Company is of a permissible nature, it is permissible to work in the IT department for such a company and the remunerations will be permissible.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
(Mufti) Abdul Azeem bin Abdur Rahman
