Santander bank. Working in the IT team


Assalaam alikum,

I know this question has already been asked.  I work for myself (a limited company) and have a contract with an agency which places me in Santander bank, a retail bank - working in the IT team.  I know that I am not directly paid by the bank but I dont want to hide behind this fact and make it a 'grey' area.  Is my income halal in this case. Thank you and Jazak Allah,


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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
