I also get a Christmas bonus even though I don't personally celebrate the holiday. In general I think the time of year is just a convenient time to give out bonuses- you could just consider it to be a yearly bonus.

WaS. There is no doubt that using pirated software is not allowed according to Islam, as it is basically stealing. Another rule in Islam is that you are answerable within your own "circle of control". Sahih Bukhari: 6719.

According to the Hanafi madh'hab, it is permissible to work in a bank as long as the job does not entail direct involvement in something haram (e.g. processing interest-based transactions).

If there's one thing i avoid then giving advise. And I'm happy that this is hardly on topic here. So let me ask you: Is the job you are asked to do haram or related to haram things/deeds? Does your work help enemies of Islam to defeat Muslims or harm them? Is it any kind of propaganda against Islam or for any other belief?... If you answered any of these ...

The rule is very simple: if you were to stay in your residence and not have your current job, would you have received said commission either way? If the answer is yes, you can take it.

Let's start with some examples. Say you write a book. It took you 6 months to write and publish. I need to use some content from it. But I don't buy the book.

Yes it is halal as there is nothing wrong with recording video games and making walk-throughs, tutorials or anything like that. And many muslims do make their earnings through YouTube.

Nothing. Unless you want to do some research for religious studies where having a hands on experience with that sect, religion is a bonus.

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful According to my researches, seemingly, it is better not to accept the gift of non-Muslims.
