Working in banks

The second question of Fatwa no. 2608
Q 2: Is it permissible to work in a bank that deals with Riba (usury/interest), even though the person has nothing to do with the Riba-based dealings, although the overall income of the bank is from Riba?
A: It is not permissible for a Muslim to work in a bank that deals with Riba, even if the job that they are appointed to do is not related to the Riba-based dealings. This is because they would be assisting those who work with Riba and cooperating with them. Allah (Exalted be He) says: ...but do not help one another in sin and transgression. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
