Trading and Interacting with the non Muslims

Trading and Interacting with the non Muslims

During the history of his calling to Islam, the Prophet and his companions still engaged in social interactions with the Jews. This fact can shed some lights upon us on the correct way to boycott products of the Jews’ companies.

The history of Islam have gone through ups and downs. At the beginning, the muslims were in the weak condition, thus they were easily oppressed by others. Oppression, intimidation, and even murder of some muslims colored the dawn of the history of this religion. But that miserable condition didn’t last long, since it was changed into victories and glories.

Regarding Company that Forbids Its Female Employee to Wear Veil

Employee to Wear Veil

Regarding Company that Forbids Its Female Employee to Wear Veil

Question:

Assalamu’alaikum.

Honorable Ustadz, I am a woman who already have a husband and children. Currently I am also working at a private company. All this time I’ve been wearing veil, but when I enter the area where I work, I remove my veil. It is because the company where I work forbid its employee to wear veil, so that the uniform will be equal for all. And the truth is most of the employees at work are non muslims.

Honestly, when I had to remove my veil, I felt really guilty although I still wear clothes that cover up my body. I have been searching for another place to work but there were no responses. I’d like to stay working to help my husband. He also know about this fact. But he also supports me.

My question is, am I sinning? Should I protest to my company? Or is there any other way?

Thank you.

Wassalam.

Regarding the Web Hosting Service

Question:

Assalaamu’alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh

[1]. What is the ruling for starting a business in web hosting service?

In this business, we give people some spaces to put their data in so that other people from around the world could access it via internet. Generally, people rent the space for personal interest, or their business interest.

The problem is that sometimes, there are people who misuse the space their rent to accommodate some interests that are against the shari’a rules, such as making it as places to upload the forbidden file of pictures and videos, mp3s of music (and stolen softwares), etc. Is this business unlawful, due to the possibility of misuse as explained here?

Or is it lawful, since what being rented are spaces, and the use is up to the renter?

– Similar question also applies on business of telecommunication service (such as cellular operator), which could be used to accommodate allowable private interests, such as enjoining people to goodness, but at the same time could be misused as to be used as a tool for courtship between unmarried couple, make a deal in unlawful business, etc.

[2]. Supposed that the business is currently running, as a web hosting manager, are we allowed to peek into the datas of the renter, in order to monitor the files that are entrusted to us? Or shall we leave it without supervision, bearing in mind that all responsibilities of space hosting use belongs to the renter?

Ruling for Removing Veil Because of Working

Question:

Assalamu’alaikum.

Honorable ustadz, you probably have heard about the news regarding the policewoman and her veil. Today, the police force of Indonesia have issued a decree that prohibited the policewomen to wear veil. If they are still stubborn, they will be asked to resign.

For a policewoman who wants to wear veil, what should she do? Whereas working as a policewoman is her only source of living.

Slave of Allah.
