Working as a chartered accountant

Q: Is it permissible to do CA jobs in Islam? CA means chartered accountant who gives reports on the financial statement (profit and loss and balance sheet) by signing it and states in his report whether it gives true and fair views of state of affairs of the company which also includes financial figures related to interest earned and interest received by the company.

A: Most of our Ulama approve of this, though they dislike some of the practices.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
