Soothsayer

Can we work in a school built by a soothsayer?

In shaa Allah there is nothing to forbid you in that because it is halal business but if its his office where he attend to people for soothsaying this is wrong to work for him because of the sayings of Allah…

Sahih International: O you who have believed, do not violate the rites of Allah or [the sanctity of] the sacred month or [neglect the marking of] the sacrificial animals and garlanding [them] or [violate the safety of] those coming to the Sacred House seeking bounty from their Lord and [His] approval. But when you come out of iúram, then [you may] hunt. And do not let the hatred of a people for having obstructed you from al-Masjid al-haram lead you to transgress. And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.

And Allah knows best.

Can we work with them

Akingbade Abdul Wasii replied 3 years ago

The office is for both school and his soothsaying

Akingbade Qorsym replied 3 years ago

That means you have to identify your service, if it collides with two that means you have to abandon the one that is soothsaying and face the schooling appointment. If this is not possible that means you have to quit the job.

As for the salat, nothing must hinder your salat time because Allah says: “Verily, the prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours”

[an-Nisa’ 4:103].
