Is it permissible for a Muslim to be a private investigator?

Like it's your job to spy on people.


Depends on the agency you're serving. If the agency is truly working in the best interests of the Muslim community and the people in general then you're serving a noble cause.

PS: Off course, you and the agency must observe Islamic laws in your investigations. That would need the cases be authorized by a pious, scholarly Muslim judge. But apparently outside the Islamic Republic of Iran (which has an Islamic judicial system and investigative body) such conditions don't exist at all.
