Barakah Jobs as mentioned before was created with the sole mission of creating a platform that allows and encourages Muslims to find halal/shariah compliant work whether it be in the west or wherever they find themselves in the world so they can bring barakah to their rizq and earnings and ensure no compromises are made to their values and deen at work.
The site is not limited to candidates of a muslim background nor is it limited to muslim run employers or companies as long as the company does not go against the rules we have listed to vet to the best of our abilities the shariah compliance of a role or the employer candidates will work for. So people and employers of differing demographics are all welcome to post with that being said.
No photos of sisters are to be uploaded on this site period with or without a hijab or niqab, whether as a profile picture for a professional, company or in any circumstance.
Brothers can choose to upload their photo if they wish however this must be an appropriate professional selfie/photograph.
This goes without saying but any inappropriate material of any kind whether a photo or text will result in immediate removal and a ban from the site.
This website relies on an honor system when it comes to posting jobs or content on this platform so we accept all applicants/employers to read this in its entirety ensuring that they use this platform accordingly.
We do not take any responsibility for governing/moderating any post or employer/applicant as of now hiring moderators and consulting a person of Ilm on every posting is not possible or practical.
Barakah Jobs instead expects every user to be honest and sincere in everything they claim or do on this site. We can not individually analyze and approve every company and are not qualified to do a detailed report on every company and deem them as shariah-compliant or not.
The only thing we can do is as said before asking for complete honesty additionally these clear basic conditions must be met in order to be able to post on this website your company must not; Be directly or indirectly involved in dealing with riba (interest) for example be a lender that gives interest-based loans or be a bank that is not certified as shariah-compliant and again not deal with riba. Please note we screen banks and financial institutions thoroughly as many claim to be Islamic institutions yet still deal in riba in some manner among other things. Banks can also present evidence to us directly themselves to demonstrate their shariah compliance.
Your company must not produce or sell any adult content (pornographic material of any kind) /entertainment that contains haram such as images of women or is promoting, contains haram/music/drugs/alcohol/ insurance/ intoxicants/pork of any kind. Your company must not be involved in gambling or fraudulent work.
Even if all of these requirements are made that does not make an employer haram free as they may be other factors inside the work environment or elsewhere in the company or your specific role in the company which may constitute dealing in haram, or compromising your deen in some way.
So again for emphasis even if these basic requirements listed in the tos are met that does not mean an employer or position is completely shariah compliant and does not have any haram included in the role or the environment that could make it either completely haram to work for or if not completely have some aspects that are sinful and compromising to your deen. Therefore we decided to include additional filters for the jobseekers benefit that also addressed the work environment as best as we could such as separate workspace for men and women et (these are not requirements to post on the site however). Which employers can select when creating their job postings to help narrow down the right job even further. Yet with everything being said again we can not take responsibility for any governing of the listings this site is just meant to be a guide and an encouragement a platform that allows the opportunity for you to find halal work. It is still incumbent on you to do your own research and vet a company and a role yourself before you begin working there to verify for yourself.
You must be a company with a relatively Islamic friendly work environment the details of which you can go into in your job posting.
The previously listed conditions that we made in accordance with Authentic Hadith, the noble Quran, the teachings of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam his companions and the understanding of the Salaf the best three generations of this ummah must, in turn, be met in order to use this website as said before we can not individually verify the dealings of each company that decides to use this platform or look at every aspect of their business to determine their credibility so instead we rely upon them to be truthful and meet these clear conditions before entering the site.
Further clarification regarding banks/financial institutions including Islamic banks. The reason most Islamic banks are subject to an review is mentioned below.
The majority of banks and financial institutions or vacancies/advertisements from them are strictly prohibited from the platform. Even most so-called Islamic banks although not to the extent of conventional banks are not, in reality, Shariah-compliant and deal with riba or haram in some manner or the other. This is a very technical and long topic that requires in-depth investigation from a person of knowledge/Ilm, especially one well versed in fiqh, particularly Islamic finance to investigate on an individual basis. InshAllah we will write an article/blog or conduct an interview with such an aforementioned person of ilm on the general topic of Islamic banks and what can make them Shariah-compliant or not. Most of these so-called Islamic banks only have a shariah board or council who meet weekly perhaps. Assuming the best the people of knowledge in such boards do their best to verify however they obviously are limited in their knowledge of the actual day-to-day operations and dealings of the institution in a way that an internal department would be in knowledge of. Thus many things whether it be the financial backing, deals, etc that are in fact riba-based in all but a matter of nomenclature pass through the cracks. This is where banks such as Al- Rajhi bank have the advantage as not only do they have a board but an internal Shariah department which overlooks all business dealings and products/services to ensure that they are compliant with the guidelines of Shariah. Allah knows best but Al Rajhi bank to the best of our knowledge is one of the examples of a true/pure Islamic bank that is Shariah-compliant and is, therefore, one such organization that is permitted to our platform. Either way, all Islamic banks are welcome to enquire and after a consultation with a person of ilm and due diligence on our part if we believe you are a fit for the site as in we believe that it is a true Islamic bank. The company will be permitted on our site.
Islamic Banks permitted on the site by default as of now (banks that we have enough knowledge about to believe to the best of our understanding are indeed a pure Islamic bank) : Al Rajhi Bank
We will continue to add to the above list as we become aware of organizations that are through are own investigations or through evidence provided to us to the best of our understanding seem Shariah compliant.
For advertisements please be aware that your company, product and service as well as the advertisement you provide us must meet the Shariah guidelines mentioned across the site and that are common knowledge. Your company, product,service or ad must not contain/promote haram, music, pictures or videos containing haram such as the awrah of men or pictures/videos of women in any form. No shirk or kufir or bidah or haram, symbols, messaging or text e.t.c.

However, if you come across a company that is not meeting these conditions or blatantly being deceitful in other ways although we can not legally take responsibility on fully monitoring the postings please do report them using
Our support email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once reported we will do our best to launch an investigation into the matter and with the consultation of a person of knowledge determine if the complaint was just and can then proceed to ban the company itself permanently or just remove the posting and issue a warning to the company inshallah in either case a refund will not be issued.
No abusive or inappropriate behaviour is allowed on this site
One final time for clarity: Although we do not have an official Sharia Supervisory Committee yet we plan on creating one in the near future inshallah as we grow for now however we rely on an honor system and ask that you read the disclaimer before using this site and ensure you agree to all conditions listed in it before using our platform if reported it is likely you will be investigated with the consultation of a person of knowledge if just cause for the complaint is found you could be potentially banned or have your listing removed from the site where in which case no refund will be issued. We have only listed the blatantly obvious conditions of shariah-compliant work for more information please refer to our site in particular the faqs and blogs/articles as we will be adding more relevant literature or videos to help clarify further. Most importantly do your own due diligence/research and consult the people of ilm yourself too.
