Is it permissible to become a lawyer in a non Muslim country?

00:00:08--> 00:00:40

There's a lot of confusion around this issue. And this revolves around the verse where Allah subhanaw taala says it's sort of not either, that's who that whoever does not rule by the rule of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then they are the transgressors. They are the disbelievers, and they are the oppressors. So how do we reconcile this verse with those individuals that want to become lawyers? So what's important to understand over here is that the lawyer is not actually coming up with legislation, they're actually trying to do multiple things. So the general default ruling on such matters is that they are permissible until proven otherwise. So you are allowed to become a

lawyer until it is proven otherwise. So what you need to keep in mind over here is that as long as you're not defending someone that you believe to be guilty, then for the most part, you are safe, and when it comes to issues of particular legislation that may be contrary to Islam. Again, I always recommend speak to a local Imam or shift and get advice at that time.
