Question
As-Salamualaikum.
I am a computer science student and I have an offer to work in a company as a software developer. That company does not develop their own software, but is hired by others. At the job interview they told me, that some of their clients are companies that run web sites for sports betting. Am I allowed to work there?

Answer
Wallaikum As Salaam!

Well, having known now that you will be involved in some software development connected to sports
betting, then it's better you try for another job that is free from this kind of activities & am
sure Inshallah you can find jobs now a days w/o much difficulties.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path of
Islam as per the Koran for rest of our life.
