In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful
1. If the bank is interest based then one cannot work there on the post where he will have to involve in the interest like accountant or cashier etc but he can work at the post where he will not have to involve in interest based work like watch man etc. Ibn Mas'ud narrated:"The Messenger of Allah (saws) cursed the one who consumed usury, and the one who charged it, those who witnessed it, and the one who recorded it." [Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1206]
2. The holy Quran says ¡°Don¡¯t put your hands into danger¡± [Surah Al-Baqrah -95] that means in Islam any act which is harmful for health is not allowed to use. So, smoking is not allowed in Shariah.
3. No, one cannot see or touch the breast of sister or aunt intentionally as there is fear to get shahwah (sexual desire).
And Allah knows the best<
