What is the ruling on working at an interest based bank?

العمل في البنوك الربوية

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

To proceed:

In response to your question, we say, and with Allah Almighty lies all success:
The Fatwa issued by a group of scholars is that all types of work at an interest based bank are prohibited. This is because all types of work are necessarily related to interest which the bank is centered on. No matter how types of work in an interest based bank differ, they serve the purpose of interest. Other scholars differentiated between work that is connected to interest and that which is not directly connected to interest. What is apparent to me is that avoiding interest based banks is a better way of acquiring earnings and good for the heart. Evilness of interest is the greatest cause of corruption in religion and the world. I advise you to look for another type of work even if it means that you lose some privileges. May Allah grant goodness and success to all.
