Can I work in an IT position at a sports company?


Assalam Alykum. I am considering applying to an IT position in the head office of a sports brand company like Nike. As you know, these sports brands also sell immodest clothing for women in addition to other sportswear. But as I mentioned I will be working as an IT staff in this company so in this case, is it halal to work in such a company?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for you to work in the IT position of a sports brand company. [1]
