If i lie about my previous salary and get a new job with high salary in another company (owned by a non muslim) and work 18 hours a day fully dedicated. Will my salary be considered as haram?

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

From Jurisprudence Perspective: It is not permissible in the said supposition. A part of your salary might be questionable.


Comments: An employer asking about past salary, in itself may be questionable. You do not have to lie. Kindly review interview and negotiating strategies. Especially what to do if asked about past salary history.
