I own a shop in the market and some people come to me and ask me where the riba-based banks are, and I tell them that I don’t know, even though I do know where they are. Is this regarded as lying, and cooperating in sin and transgression?

My husband works in a western country in a company that sells women’s and men’s clothing, as well as children’s clothing, household needs and gold, i.e., everything. My question: in this company there is a section for food, i.e., a restaurant in which they sell pork and alcohol, but my husband works in the section that sells clocks and gold. Is his salary considered halaal or haraam? I hope that you can explain in detail.

If he leaves this job, any other job will also involve some things that are forbidden according to sharee’ah, so what should he do? Should he continue in his job or give it up and let his children go hungry when he cannot find any means of taking care of them?

My wife wants to help me apply for a loan from the ‘Abd al-Lateef Jameel Fund (Bab Rizq program), by applying on the basis that she is going to set up a small business by herself. The people in charge of the Bab Rizq fund will examine her application. If they agree and she gets the money, I will take it from her and open a legitimate business or something else that will benefit us. Is that permissible? Please note that we are in urgent need of this money.
