Working in a Catholic charity

Working in a Catholic charity



salaam, I was wondering is it okay if a muslim works for a catholic charities home shelter, i cant seem to find a job and i need some means of income! please let me know i start work today?! but if it wrong i shall leave it for the sake of allah! thank you


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.


You must be aware of the false principles that the Catholic Church is working to spread through these charity organizations; so working in them involves prohibitions, like helping in evil, or seeing it without denying it, or deceiving and misguiding the Muslim public.

Hence, you should not work for a Catholic charity. You should know that whoever leaves something for the sake of Allaah, Allaah will compensate him with something better. Allaah says (what means): {And whoever fears Allaah - He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect.} [Quran 65:2-3]

Moreover, Imaam Ahmad  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him reported from a Bedouin that he heard the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) saying: "You do not leave anything out of fear of Allaah, except that Allaah gives you what is better than it."

Allaah Knows best.
