Question

Some times software companies having MNC(Multinational Corporation) status take up defense contracts of non-muslim countries and they include western countries such as USA, UK ..etc. Some of these western countries are involved in wars and conflicts. These software companies mostly take up contracts that are non-defense in nature such as software and automation for health care medical appliances

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The question is not complete. What you want to ask about is not clear from the question.

If what you are asking about is whether the fact that the company has contracts with non-Muslim countries in automation for health care medical equipment, has an effect, and whether this prevents from dealing with it, or working for it; if this is what you meant, then there is no harm or sin in working for it and dealing with it.

What you mentioned does not affect the permissibility as you will not intentionally or directly be helping the company in doing what is forbidden. Therefore, the principle ruling that it is permissible remains.

However, if you meant something else, then please clarify it to us so that we can issue an appropriate Fatwa to your question.

Allah knows best.
