Sir, I am a banking student and I want to ask that can I work in a non-Muslim bank in India?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ibn Mas'ud Radiallahu Anhu narrates: "The Messenger of Allah cursed the one who consumed usury (Riba) and the one who charged it, those who witnessed it, and the one who recorded it."
Allama Yousuf Ludianavi said: “It is prohibited (Haram) to work for a bank or in a bank that is based on interest.”
Only Allah knows best
