Assalamu alaikum everyone: Question: do you find that by the standards of Ulamma, most Muslims are disadvantaged in terms of their choice of profession in the West? For example, many scholars/imams advise people to steer away from the financial sector professions in the West due to Riba, whether one is directly providing and earning income from Riba, or indirectly dealing with it (e.g. documenting Riba income and expenses). So, what is a Muslim to do then? Some go even so far as stating that even if your job position is not directly related to haram services, if your employer is doing some haram work then your income is haram. Say, for example a person works in administration management at a clinic that in addition to general services provides also abortion service. While not performing abortions themselves, would this person's income be haram too? Seems to me that regardless, a Muslim is professionally doomed. He/she can only work poor jobs then such as cleaning, construction, personal business if they have the financial means and skills to start it, etc. Your thoughts?
