Asalamualikum, I work in a retail store that requires me to work Alchohol, sell through scanning at the tills and stock wines/spirits. This job also includes the handling of pork, lottery and cigarettes. I would like to know the permissibility of me being able to do this job and whether I am able to carry out the duties asked of me. Many thanks.

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,
We hope this answer finds you in high Islamic spirit.
It is not allowed to sell or buy alcohol, wines/spirits, and, pork. The rest is fine. We advise you to change your position so you don’t have to sell these items or quit the job. May Allah help you.
