Clarification – Is my friend’s job Haram?


Assalamu alaykum respected scientists. My friend works for a government agency. There he is forced to write documents unfairly, which violate the rights of other people and he himself is against it, but if he shows his discontent he will be fired. So far he has no other job. What should he do ? Barakallahu fikum


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

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