    Title: Should we consider a muslim boy working in Exim Bank of India for marriage alliance?

    Question: I am working in Income Tax Department. We are very much concerned with halal and haram. My daughter is studying in B.Ed. (Maths). One marriage alliance is held up for the reason that the boy is working in Exim Bank of India. The Bank is mainly meant for promoting cross border trade. However, they are doing banking activities also. Should we drop this alliance or should we consider this alliance?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1524/1020/L=12/1434) If the boy does interest based accounts of the bank, then it is better not to consider the proposal.
