Working to build hotel alcohol
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 2 (part):
..Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancor: fear Allah: for Allah is strict in punishment.
If one is absolutely convinced that the place one is helping to design or construct will be used for dealing in what has clearly been declared as haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws), then it would be best, purest, and akin to piety and righteousness for the believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day to abstain from taking any part in facilitating such an operation. If one facilitates or helps build the premises, knowing that the premises one is helping construct will be used to deal in a product or operation which has been declared haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws), he indeed will share an appropriate portion and burden of the sin according to the level of his participation.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
