I am working as a teacher in the bohra institution ( msb institution )
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
i my self is a bohra ,& was born & brought in a typical bohra atmosphere where i was told to respect the bhai sahebs & their `leader`but Alhamdolillaha i was married to person ,though bohra ,but Allaha had already enlightened his heart & through him Alhamdolillaha Allaha showed me the right path .i am working as a teacher in the bohra institution ( msb institution ) & i have already informed the authorities that i have nothing to do with their `akeeda` , iam neither shia nor sunni but a muslim .i would like to ask u that is it right for me to work with them ?

Work with bohra institution
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved Sister in Islam, we are obviously not aware what the msb institution stands for or what exactly it does; but if the institution you are employed in does not do or promote anything which has been declared unlawful in Islam (shirk, disbelief, alcohol, gambling, prostitution, riba, etc.), even if the institution were to be owned by a non-muslim.there is absolutely no prohibition in Islam in a believer seeking to work in such an institution.
If you could kindly enlighten us regarding what exactly does the institution you work in do or promote, then we would be in a better position to guide you in light of the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
