Q. I am a taxi driver who has to transport men and women of all kinds. I have to take them to parties, churches and even casinos. What does the Shariah say about my work?

A. The Shariah says that it is not permissible for you to be working in this haraam job. It is not permissible to transport people to haraam functions and events nor is it permissible for the male driver to transport females who are unaccompanied by their mahram males. Just as the trader in his shop has to abstain from any haraam activity, so too should the driver of a transport vehicle abstain from aiding sin and transgression.
