Opening Checking Bank Account: OK?



Reply Date

Sep 29, 2018


As-salamu `alaykum. I’m obliged to open a checking bank account so that the company where I work can transfer my salary to it. Also, my pension from an earlier official work, from which I had retired, is transferred to this account. Really I’m not comfortable with this. Could you kindly enlighten me if it is OK to continue dealing with this account according to Islam’s rulings?
