    Question: I work in a call center for a magazine company who sends magazine to their customers. This company sells nude magazines as well. However I am now trained to take these calls which I know it is unlawful. People call to buy this magazine and I process the order for them and I may also have to see the nude pictures to provide them information and description. I want to know if I can search for a lawful job and quit or quit this job immediately by serving 1 month notice. I tried with other companies and got rejected, and most of the companies are into banking which is again unlawful, or can I request my company to take me off the nude magazine calls and continue my work with the same company. Will my salary remain lawful if i don't take nude magazine calls as the company generates revenue from all the magazines. Please guide me to the right path, I don’t want my family to have a haram meal.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    This task of yours is also among the tasks of helping in sins and thus your income is not pure. While keeping this job you should search any other lawful job and when you get one leave the present job.
