Becoming a fitness instructor

Q: I am 16. I always wanted to be a fitness instructor but I have been told that it is haram because I am prone to zina because women are dressing inappropriately.


A: It is totally haraam and forbidden in Islam for a strange man to freely interact or be casual with non mahram women. Imagine how much more serious and offence it would be for one to become a fitness instructor for non mahram women!

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