Islamic Questions & Answers
young brother living in Canada and raised here. I
currently attend a mixed kafir school(currently im my
final year 12).Although I have read in your web-site
that mixed schools are haram (and I personally don't
doubt that my self). the only Islamic school in my
area is also a mixed school. I was not aware until
recently that mixed schools are Haram in Islamic
shar'eeah.Also my mom would be greatly heart broken if
I left this kafir school. my qouestion is; am I
allowed to complete my high school education in this
kafir school? which I will have to stay in for the
next 5 month.
Praise be to Allaah.
The basic principle is that it is not permissible for
anyone to study in mixed schools, because of the evils
and haraam things that result from mixing, as is
obvious to everyone.
If there is an urgent or genuine need to study, and
there is no option other than mixed schools, then
there is nothing wrong with you completing your
studies, but you must lower your gaze and avoid the
causes of fitnah (temptation), and remember that
Allaah is always watching you, in secret and in the
Shaykh Ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) said
concerning the one who is faced with this problem of
mixed schools: They have to try hard to lower their
gaze, protect themselves and keep away from temptation
which could lead them into haraam actions. If he
notices that he is starting to slip towards something
haraam, he should stop attending. End quote from the
answer to question no. 6118.
We ask Allaah to make you steadfast in word and deed.
And Allaah knows best.
He is being taught by a female teacher – what
should he do?
I am a high school student and my question is:
What can I do about the women at my school? They are
my teachers and class mates and I have to talk to them
and look at them.
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question ( What should medical students do
in lectures given by female teachers? ) to Shaykh 'Abd-Allaah
ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him), who replied as
People like these students have no other option, so
they have to try hard to lower their gaze, protect
themselves and keep away from temptation which could
lead them into haraam actions. If he notices that he
is starting to slip towards something haraam, he
should stop attending the lecture.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Shaykh 'Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen
