I suppose yes, provided that any alcohol is not consumed by that person, oddly enough lots of British liquor/of licience stores are owned/managed by folk of this faith.

I looked it up and i found it here on yahoo.(Q) "can muslims serve alchohol if its part of their job?If they got offered a job which contains serving alchohol are they allowed to take the job? where they not drinking it however, they need a job right now and thats their only option. its for a friend reference. P.S. NO RACIAL REMARKS PLEASE." A "No Drinking serving and selling alcohol is haram(forbidden) who ever did that he had sinned Edit (hadith from the prophet peace be upon him) According to Sunan Ibn-I-Majah Volume 3, Book of Intoxicants, Chapter 30 Hadith No. 3380. It was reported by Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: "God’s curse falls on ten groups of people who deal with alcohol. The one who distills it, the one for whom it has been distilled, the one who drinks it, the one who transports it, the one to who it has been brought, the one whom serves it, the one who sells it, the one who utilizes money from it, the one who buys it and the one who buys it for someone else."Source(s):Muslim 4 yrs ago / *Muslimah*"

In my opinion, YES, a very devoted Muslim is allowed to work in a licensed alcohol restaurant. He/she works there because its a job. Not allowing a Muslim to work is discrimination especially in America because of freedom of speech, religion etc. If that person adhere to his/her strong faith/will power to abstain from consuming alcohol in a place where alcohol is easily available, he/she has overcome the sin of temptation and he/she is a great Muslim *
