Q: Some people who own restaurants in
are asking about employing some Kafir (non-Muslim) workers in the kitchens, since we cannot be safe from their betrayal.
Eating the food made by Kafir workers that do not contain anything Haram (prohibited) is permissible. The Prophet (peace be upon him) ate food that was prepared by Jews. As for those who are not of (Part No. 22; Page No. 347) the People of the Book, they should not slaughter animals by themselves. It is not permissible to bring Kafir workers to Muslim lands, particularly to
the Arabian Peninsula, since the Prophet (peace be upon him) ordered to drive them out of it. Moreover, there are enough Muslim workers in Muslim countries.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
