Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Do I have to cancel the contract between me and the owner of the farm because there are no mosques here in this place? Or should I go back to work and there will be no sin on me?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
You do not have to cancel your contract, and you can stay on the farm. This is permissible provision so long as you are doing acceptable work and earning a halaal income. Praise Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, offer the prayers on time, say the adhaan and iqaamah, maintain your religious commitment and be of good cheer, even if you are on your own. Praise be to Allah. End quote.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
