Question:

Salam,
Is it allowed to work in Domino’s pizza as a delivery driver. As there is no other job suitable for me according to.my current circumstances.
I can find a halal job but salary will be very low as compared to my present job at dominos.

Answer:

Bismillah

Abdullah ibn Masood raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:

“Seeking of halal earnings is compulsory after the obligatory duties.”
(Shuabul Iman lilBaihaqi Hadith 8213)

One should work in such an environment where his income is 100% halal. Two conditions needs to be found to determine if the work is lawful or not;

  1. The nature of the work is lawful
  2. More than 50% of the income is halal.

Bearing all this in mind and taking into consideration your question we can conclude that working as a delivery driver for such companies would entail earning more than 50% halal since you will be delivering mainly halal products. However, you should still make effort to look for a job which does not involve handling haram. In the meantime, to keep this job and work in such environment would be permissible.

Only Allah knows best.
