Working in restaurants that serve alcohol and pork

A: It is not permissible to lease a hotel license if it serves alcoholic beverages, such as wine and the like, that facilitates (Part No. 14; Page No. 438) the committing of prohibited acts, as this falls under cooperating in sin and transgression, as well as fighting against Allah and His Messenger. Allah (Exalted be He) says (what means): Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwâ (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment. Furthermore, it is not permissible to lease this license at all, as a license can only be used by the person to whom it was given, and for the specific purpose it was given. This is so, unless the purpose is Haram (prohibited) or help in doing something Haram. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
