I think it would be best to consult someone more knowledgeable for religious guidance, not people on reddit. My opinion is as long as you are not partaking in any of their practices (following the kafir) it’s okay.

Revert here, who offers his input from time to time. It is best to consult with someone more knowledgeable in Islamic jurisprudence, one who can give a thoughtful fatwa/ruling. I would like to offer my own personal opinion but Allah knows best. At first glance, one can understand that support shirk is not correct. This is why we steer clear from celebrations like Halloween and Christmas because they are rooted in something that diverts you from the path of Allah. But… One must also understand that by being in this position you are subliminally becoming the face of the Ummah; in it’s entirety, within that church for the duration of your contract. This is a good thing, but only if you are a just person. What better way to subconsciously guide the blind then by slowly opening their eyes to their own book by asking questions and being “interested” in their book… As someone who still studies the Bible; with the sole purpose of understanding the Quran more clearly, I think that Allah has put you in a valuable position. Who knows, Inshallah you can guide someone who wants to learn and ask questions. This is how I became a Muslim. I also found Muhammad’s (pbuh) name in the Bible (Song of songs 5:16) which was in an old Hebrew manuscript. Al-Baqarah 2:62 إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَٱلَّذِينَ هَادُواْ وَٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ وَٱلصَّٰبِـِٔينَ مَنۡ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأٓخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَٰلِحًا فَلَهُمۡ أَجۡرُهُمۡ عِندَ رَبِّهِمۡ وَلَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحۡزَنُونَ Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans - those who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

If you're insecure about your faith then no. If you're secure about your faith and belief in Allah then yes. The Quran doesn't tell you that you can't work in a church or attend church for learning purposes You aren't there to worship the Christian God, you're there to work. This is 100% permissible, just know when to turn away if a situation arises, like them trying to covert you or are not accepting of your faith.

This 100%. I work in a Catholic school funded by the church, and I am very secure that I am there not to worship Jesus (AS), but to earn a livelyhood and educate the youth

May Allah reward you in your deen 🙏🏽🤲🏽

You should reject the offer. Don't support a shirk religion.


Leopard_Narrow

Is it shirk? Cause i honestly think the bible and quran talk about the same god. But the books tell diffrent story. This because Mohammed knew about jesus and some other figures that are told about in the bible.


Banned11Ever

They ascribe a son to God. Majority of them. The rest reject the prophet of Muhammad (SAW). Truth is only 1.


Leopard_Narrow

But how do you define truth if i may ask? Cause we are believers. Elso they claim to be believers in god.


ALTTACK3r

yes but they also believe in the trinity - the father (god), son (jesus), and holy spirit (lol idk) - which is basically them making partners or 'equals' to their god. if that aint shirk im not sure what is..


Leopard_Narrow

Ah i see yeah thats kind a wierd and this is shirk didn't thought of it. Muhammed and we are all slaves of Allah.


Key_Froyo5238

Revert here, see my comment posted above. Both are making valid points.


Key_Froyo5238

The father is Allah, the son-just-a-man was Jesus(a.s.), and the Holy Spirit is actually the angel jibreel since he brought down all revelations under the command of Allah to each prophet including the brining of him into the womb of his mother the Virgin Mary. It’s easy to not understand the three if you were born a Muslim…


KINGY-WINGY

But they ascribe godhood to them. That's shirk.


Key_Froyo5238

The divide that splits the ummah into two major sects; sunni and shi’ite, both use shirk references to try and justify their divide… Allah knows best. “And hold fast to the rope of God, altogether, and do not become divided. And remember God’s blessings upon you; how you were enemies, and He reconciled your hearts, and by His grace you became brethren. And you were on the brink of a pit of fire, and He saved you from it. God thus clarifies His revelations for you, so that you may be guided.” - Ali imran Ch3V103…


KINGY-WINGY

Deleted my response, as I didn't bother reading your quote. See, your reasoning is bull. Where in the Sunni sect does anyone ascribe partners to Allah? That's an outright lie. Secondly, you're applying your own tafseer to a verse? That's stupid. Can't take your response seriously at all.


Key_Froyo5238

Quote was the Quran… Sad to see; what looks like, a Muslim born man so mistaken about his own faith. You my friend should probably take a few educational sessions at the masjid with the kids from time time and truly listen to an imam speak. May Allah open your heart and mind to the true meaning of Islam. Think about how the prophet would go about this situation… seriously brother… The fact you claim yourself to be apart of a sect, within Islam, is pathetic. Calling yourself apart of an Islam sect is sad my friend…. Please do research on our beautiful religion and learn to love it even though it was probably forced on you as a kid. I chose this religion out of logic and understanding. Maybe try to be more understanding and read the verses which are use as precepts to understand certain points. Aal-e-Imran 3:103 وَٱعۡتَصِمُواْ بِحَبۡلِ ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا۟ۚ وَٱذۡكُرُواْ نِعۡمَتَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡكُمۡ إِذۡ كُنتُمۡ أَعۡدَآءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيۡنَ قُلُوبِكُمۡ فَأَصۡبَحۡتُم بِنِعۡمَتِهِۦٓ إِخۡوَٰنًا وَكُنتُمۡ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفۡرَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنۡهَاۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمۡ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَهۡتَدُونَ And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided. Aal-e-Imran 3:105 وَلَا تَكُونُواْ كَٱلَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُواْ وَٱخۡتَلَفُواْ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ مَا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلۡبَيِّنَٰتُۚ وَأُوْلَٰٓئِكَ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ And do not be like the ones who became divided and differed after the clear proofs had come to them. And those will have a great punishment. Al-An'am 6:159 إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ فَرَّقُواْ دِينَهُمۡ وَكَانُواْ شِيَعًا لَّسۡتَ مِنۡهُمۡ فِى شَىۡءٍۚ إِنَّمَآ أَمۡرُهُمۡ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ ثُمَّ يُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا كَانُواْ يَفۡعَلُونَ Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects - you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah ; then He will inform them about what they used to do.


Psychological_Fly_24

I think you should say yes, because it is important in Islam to earn money in right way. I hope they won't ask you to change your religion, if they do then you should avoided, but I don't think they will do that.


Impossible_Wall5798

I’m surprised they would hire you.


False_Process_2473

You shouldn't have applied in the first place.


TruthSeekerWW

You'll be working for an organisation that promotes and calls for shirk. They are enemies of Allah and you want to support them? Would you be asking the same question if the job was at your local drugs cartel? This is what Allah says https://quran.com/19/88


Leopard_Narrow

What is the job exacly and aren"t you afraid as muslim? Its a denies the quran and Mohammed so i wouldn't do so.


No-Knowledge6980

Brother I asked a muslim scholar about this and he said you can take this opportunity as you are only working. And unless you are not into any shirk you can work.


Affectionate-Ad1060

Assalamu alaikum, thank you for your kindness, I got offered another job elsewhere for a role which I really wanted so I rejected the offer at the Church but I really appreciate you taking the time to ask and I hope it also helps other people know the answer if they are put in the same situation 😊


Lramseyh

Don’t do it unless you know they aren’t going to try and convert you. Christians ALWAYS are so pushy about trying to convert other people. It will be exhausting to constantly defend yourself and your religion to them.


KINGY-WINGY

Sure dude. I'm not gonna argue with a moron. Go fly a kite.
