Hey everyone... how are you guys?
I am just curious how can one become an ulema (especially if you are a sister)? I want to become one but I heard that it's really hard?

An Alima is simply one with knowledge. Read lots of books. Study Islam on your own. Insha'Allah it won't be difficult.

We need more muslim women scholars.

I will give you some sites to study from.
Read all the fatawa and articles on this site:

And these too:

If you are serious about getting a degree, I would recommend travelling to Medina University in Saudi, or studying at the Islamic Universities in Malaysia.

Or Umm Al Qura Uni in Makkah.

But you need mahrams to travel abroad.. And Saudi Arabia requires you to enter with a mahram, won't let you in without one.

If you can't travel abroad, try taking education by an alimah that may be in your locality. Learning from sites is great...but usually when you're learning by somebody they teach you Arabic, which will be very useful when reading ahadith in Arabic and stuff. :)

Its not hard...just takes a lot of dedication, like any other field of education. :)

May allah subhann'hu'wataallah'aah help you in your thirst for knowledge sister.
Thumma Ameen

yeah its better to learn from somebody ..the sites given above are good but i dnt think ..its a good way to gain knowledge that way incase u misunderstand sum Mathaail .. and its important to Learn Arabic as well..
i never knew Madina University was for sisters as well.. :omg: SubhanAllah .. but the sad thing is like sister MM_c mentioned we need Mehrams to go abroad with n as far as i know the Majority of Mehrams wudnt even travel..

*Feels REALLY sorry herself n the rest of the sisters*

ok bak tothe point .. so Sis Yusra if u wanna be an Alima .. then inshAllah dnt Hesitate go for it .... n if u have probs we all r here to help u out . :-) InshAllah May Allah swt make it easier 4 u .. (Ameen)
