I am working in a food counter of a superstore where sometimes I need to touch pork / ham (though I am using gloves). Is it haram. I don't have any other source of income.

@Farhana when asking a question, try to look/read the tips on the right side of the screen.

If this is your only source of income and you are not making direct contact, bare hand touching haram foods, then Allah understands because he the most merciful. If you are able to switch jobs then that would be a great idea. Try to minimize contact and if you do touch the ham/pork remember to always say Astagfirullah. But other than that just be careful and keep your heart clean.

It's good to find some job but if you don't get any, you can continue but only with a good heart!
