I would like to know if being a police officer a good career to have in a islamic perspective…
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
Generally, a Muslim is required to adopt a means of livelihood and a career, where it is easy for him to practice his religion. It is not permissible to intentionally get into something where one knows very well that he will have to compromise in his religious teachings and at times, may even have to leave out certain important and essential practices of his religion.
Therefore, if in being a police officer, a person believes that he can continue to practice his religious teachings without compromise, then he can go ahead to be a police officer. However, if in doing so, a person knows that he will have to compromise, and leave out some of his religious practices, then he should go for this profession.
And Allah Knows best
