Working for a company that sells wine glasses and other items

Q: My relative works in a IT company owned and run by a Muslim in America, and has an office in Pakistan. It has a major website selling apparel and bags. In this site, they are also specifically selling wine glasses and promoting it as for drinking wine. Is it permissible for him to work in this company?

A: If he is selling just the apparel and bags then there is no doubt in his income. Selling wine glasses is reprehensible. Don't ever say that this is for drinking wine.

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