Working for a Christian Charity

Q: Is a Muslim allowed to work for a Christian Charity? This particular Christian charity works with young people mainly Christians and provides youth work facilities, activities and opportunities. Some of the funding in particular for the outreach work comes from Churches. Other money is from a range of sources. The role involves managing staff rotas, projects, funding etc.

A: Working for a Christian charity is not permissible. This is definitely supporting the spread of Christianity. And Muslims are not allowed to assist in spreading any other religion but Islam.
