a Muslim to accept a job

This post has 1,541 views.


My brother has been approached by ABI for an interview. I know that ABI and SAB (South African Breweries) have merged and that SAB is the major shareholder of ABI.
From an Islamic point of view would it be permitted for a Muslim to accept a job at ABI?


Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

ABI is a company manufacturing and selling legitimate products. Therefore it is permissible to accept a position in ABI irrespective of who the parent company is. 


And Allah knows best
