Question ID: 716 Category: Dealings and Transactions
Working in IT Department of Insurance Firm


Mufti sahab I hope you are fine by the grace of Allah.
I want to know if under circumstances when I have no jobs offer from any company and I really need to start earning as I have to repay debts and support my family is it permissible to work for the IT department in Allianz Global ( ?
Allianz Global offers a comprehensive range of corporate and speciality insurance services across the spectrum of marine, aviation, corporate and industrial insurance. The department which has job opening is basically Information Technology (IT) department responsible for global information management and reporting services.
Jazak Allah Khair and hope to get a quick response.



الجواب وبالله التوفيق

Insurance fundamentally is based upon interest and gambling. However as per the situation you have described in your question i.e. reporting of already agreed upon contracts etc., there is gunjaish(provision) to work in that capacity.
