Asalamualaykum,

Okay recently i've been really ready to start wearing the niqab! My parents didn't want it but I decided I don't need to lissen to them if I am doing something right. Now the problem is I am living in America and I wanted to become a pharmacist. But then I came to the conclusion that if I become a pharmacist nobody will hire me. So I decided I would become a dentist since my parents are willing to open me a clinic. Yesterday I was telling my friend/sister who is now going to med school (inshaAllah) about my plan and she said that if you're a niqabi when they interview you, it's most likely that they wont accept you.imsad What do you guys think about this? Any advice??:cry:

JazakAllah Khair

salamu 'alaykum,

What I would tell you is this. THE MAJORITY (meaning more than half) of the scholars say niqab is optional. So, maybe you can wear the hijab and not wear niqab at work.

idk...I always thot women who did that were a lil weird >.<. id be thinkin in my head 'whats the point O.o'. but i guess it cud be an option...jazakAllah khair..but about it being obligatory [i DO NOT want this to turn into an argument about this,i just want an explanation] I was reading a translation the other day and in surah al ahzab ayah 59 says

"O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e.screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And All�h is Ever Oft�Forgiving, Most Merciful."

and also ayah 31 of an-noor..


Maybe you or somebody else could explain that for me? I don't mean to challenge you or anything..I just have limited knowledge lol

jazakAllah khair

If you are qualified but rejected just for niqab , then better to talk to a lawyer or take help from women's organisation.

Ask Allah to grant what is good for you .

congrats on ur niqaab wearing...:)

hmm i reckon you should go ahead with studying whatever you want, becuase its a takes a good few years to became a qualified dr/dentist, right? so who knows whats going to happen in that time, innit :? anything can happen. maybe you will find that a muslim/muslimah will employ you...just go with it, and when you come to that corner, take it! =)

agreed :thumbs_up

and a little naseeha sis, please go to shiekh and ask him about wearing the niqaab when your parents don't allow you to. i just say this because it is forbidden to disobey your parents, except when they tell you to do something haram. so yh go see a sheikh cos you could be disobeying them :)

Niqaab isn't fardh, so don't make things hard on yourself, sister.

Almost all the masjids around my area believe the niqab is fardh especially the salafi one and I believed it. But jazakAllah khair to all of you!

salaam sis!!

Mashallah firstly congratulations on wanting to take the some what difficult step of wearing a niqaab esp in this day and age. I myself am not a niqaabi but i have heard how it has effected others around me. Whether u choose to wear it or not is obviously entirely up to you and if you do choose to do so then have Faith in Allah and make dua and inshallah good will come out of your actions.

Wasalaam

Asalamu Alaykum sis May Allah bless you for this great reply
Ameen ok someone said earlier that the majority of the scholars say it is not fardh well i beg to differ from what i know the correct view say it is Fardh now when i say the correct viem of course i am talking about the scholars who are upon the salaf
The correct view is that a woman is obliged to cover her entire body, even the face and hands. Imam Ahmad said that even the nails of a woman are ‘awrah, and this is also the view of Maalik (may Allaah have mercy on them both). Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
“… It seems that the view of Ahmad is that every part of her is ‘awrah, even her nails, and this is also the view of Maalik.”
(Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 22/110).
Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
“Allaah commands women to let the jilbaab come down (over their faces) so that they will be known (as respectable women) and not be annoyed or disturbed. This evidence supports the first opinion. ‘Ubaydah al-Salmaani and others stated that the women used to wear the jilbaab coming down from the top of their heads in such a manner that nothing could be seen except their eyes, so that they could see where they were going. It was proven in al-Saheeh that the woman in ihraam is forbidden to wear the niqaab and gloves. This is what proves that the niqaab and gloves were known among women who were not in ihraam. This implies that they covered their faces and hands.”
(Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 15/371-372)
and many of the scholars most of them who are upon the salaf say it is fardh but there is still a diff in opinions
so May Allah make our eman strong and hearts firm Islam Ameen
