Assalamualaikum, I have been wanting to get a job and decided to get it around October near to Christmas time as there will be more demand for employees so it will be easier, but is it haram for me to get a temporary job around Christmas at amazon where they deal with packing and shipping of items (warehouse operative) incase I am assisting in sin as I may be packing Christmas gifts etc? Therefore would this be considered haram wealth? If that is so then may I ask what I can do as most jobs this time will be Christmas related thank you. Also just incase I am from the United Kingdom.

I read on islamqa.org that it is okay to work at amazon as a warehouse operative even if you possibly send out sinful items because you have no relation to the direct production or selling of the impermisssable items.


But then came the question on whether it would be haram wealth as the job application comes up as a temporary job for Christmas time; and I know that it is not right to work at stores and things that give Christmas discounts etc. This is why I am confused.

  • I think it is different from that reference question because I am already questioning whether it is haram or not, the reference post mentions that you should check if something is haram if 1: you question what you have heard is haram or 2: you question it from your own wisdom if something doesn’t feel right, I am already questioning my situation with Christmas and work so I am not sure what I should do. But thank you. – Sister Nov 2 '19 at 14:20
