Question # : 7169

United Kingdom

Can I work in an environment where gambling is practiced, but I don't work in the gambling industry but merely provide security for the general public. The event is based on horses racing and competing with each other and the horse that wins the race gets prize money. But, the people are gambling on each horse. Sheikh Makhtom of Dubai also has horses competing. Is this Haram or Halal earning?
