Cashier at 7-Eleven

Fatwaa ID: 607

Assalamualikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu. A sister asked me the following. Kindly please answer.

Aslamualaikum sister, I hope you are doing well Inshallah. I have a question sister, I have to work as a cashier at 7 eleven which sells alcohol besides other goods. I am so worried, about my income. It will be halal or haram. Please sister give me a good answer.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Your job as a cashier at 7-Eleven is permissible. However, it is advisable that you give a small portion of your income away in charity if you had checked out haraam items.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
