Q 2: What is the ruling on
working in banks
and on the salaries paid to their employees?
According to what is mentioned in the answer of the first question, working in banks that deal in usury is unlawful because the employees are either scribes of usurious calculations, receivers of the money which is used in usury, givers of this money, holders or transferors of their securities from an office to another, (Part No. 13; Page No. 345) or from a place to another or suppliers of services to people who work in the bank or outside it. Hence, they perform a direct or indirect unlawful act. The salary which the employees take for their work is prohibited.
