Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Brother/sister, we really do appreciate your question, which shows how interested you are in becoming well acquainted with Islam and its teachings. May Allah bless your efforts in the pursuit of knowledge!

As for your question, we have forwarded it to Sheikh Muhammed Nur Abdullah, President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council of North America, who gave the following fatwa:

“Yes, it is allowed but if you feel uncomfortable, then you may look for a better job.”

If you are still in need of more information, don’t hesitate to contact us. Do keep in touch. May Allah guide us all to the straight path!

Allah Almighty knows best.
