Question and Answer:
Q. My brother is offered a job to work as a driver for a liquor store business. Can he take the job. Would his earnings still be halaal

A. No. It is not permissible for him to take this job and his income will not be Halaal. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has cursed the one who transports wine. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

“Allah has cursed wine, the one who drinks it, the one who serves it, the one who sells it, the one who purchases it, the one who presses it, the one who manufactures it, the one who transports it and the one to whom it is delivered” (Abu Dawood, #: 3676, Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar)
