Choosing Between Working and Studying Islamic Knowledge.


I am a university student Allah favored me with guidance, I am studying a scientific specialization, and this is my final year, but I would like to study Islamic knowledge, even though my family is in dire need of me at this time. will it be better that I work in the course of my speciality after graduation, or shall I study again an Islamic specialization? I now live in a deep confusion with myself because of this.


Praise be to Allah, and may peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, and on his family, and his companions, after that: We ask Allah to make things easier for you, and to grant you that which He is pleased with.

know that there is no conflict between your work in your field of specialization after graduation and to study Islamic knowledge. What we advise you to do is to fulfil both of them, by working in your field to meet the needs of your family, and your responsibilities, and devote some of your time to studying the Islamic sciences. This by the grace of Allah is easy, and its means are many and available for those with true sincerity and correct aim.

Make use of that by organizing your time and do not waste it; wasting time is the source of missing many good beneficial things.

And also make more supplications, and resort to Allah Almighty, He the Almighty is the One who grants all good and no one beside him.

And Allah knows best.

Original Fatwa in Arabic Language:


أنا طالب جامعي منَّ الله عليَّ بالهداية، أدرس تخصصًا علميًّا، وهذه آخر سنة لي، ولكني أرغب بشدة في دراسة العلم الشرعي، علمًا أن أسرتي في هذا الوقت في أمسِّ الحاجة إليَّ، فهل الأولى بعد التخرج أن أعمل في مسار تخصصي، أم أدرس من جديد تخصصًا شرعيًّا؟ علمًا أنني أعيش الآن في نزاع شديد مع نفسي بسبب ذلك.


الحمد لله، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وعلى آله، وصحبه، أما بعد:

فنسأل الله أن ييسر لك أمرك، ويوفقك لما فيه رضاه. ثم اعلم أنه لا تعارض بين عملك في مجال تخصصك بعد تخرجك وبين دراسة العلم الشرعي. فالذي ننصحك به هو: الموازنة بين الأمرين... إلخ.
