Going for job interviews wearing a kurta

Q: A man’s been trying hard for a job for sometime. He attends interviews with his kurta, adamantly maintaining that success lies in following the dress of Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), even if that means he has to go hungry, yet his spouse and family implicate that he is affecting his chances of obtaining a job because of the impression it creates. What advice would you tender to assist the man in this case and give him strength from the inevitable doubts created in his mind by his family?


A: One who is sincere and he has the right yaqeen Allah Ta’ala will definitely open the way for him. He needs to consult with some righteous understanding ulama around him.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
