Part Time Job

Q:

As salamu alaikum. I am a teacher working in a university. There is a rule set by the the administration that a teacher must work at least 35 hours/week whether there class or not. So if someone wants to do a part time job in any other institution without hampering the class or exam work of full time job, then will it be haram? For your kind knowledge the administration doesn't approve such part time jobs. Jazakallah khair.

A:

Waalaykum Salaam

If they are paying you for 35 hours weekly, you cannot do anything else at that time, except with the employers permission. You can do the part time work in the rest of the time.

Kind regards
Abbas
