Question # : 21681

United Kingdom

My question is regarding alcohol. As in London in super stores if we work we need to serve alcohol like puting them in the shelf. In restaurants we need to serve them to Non-muslims and to few Muslims if they drink. So is I am allowed to work in the Superstores or in restaurants like dat?

While doing job in supper stores of London, since you have to offer alcohol to Muslim and non-Muslim for drinking; hence it is not lawful due to helping in sins.
