can i work at a cafe that serves food that may have pork in it? like if someone were to cook it and I would serve it? or that also serves alcohol if I am not serving the alcohol myself? or washing dishes that contain pork/alcohol? would the money from this job be haram?
The general rule is that it is forbidden to work at a place that sells or serves pork or alcohol, whether as a waiter, cook or dishwasher.
An exception can be made for someone who cannot find any other job and who has no other source of income. Such a person can work at such a place until they are able to find another option.
