I am in grade 11 and i prefect elections will soon take place. Would it be permissible for me to be elected as a prefect at my school?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I attend a mixed christian school (boys and girls together) and i have been told that as a Muslim girl, i am unable to undertake the role of a prefect as women cannot take leadership roles. Due to the fact that we will have to look over boys and be a ‘guardian’ over them. Would it be permissible for me to be elected as a prefect at my school?

Answer

Any form of intermingling between Ghayr Mahram (not prohibited in marriage) boys and girls is prohibited. It will, thus, not be permissible for you to accept the position as a prefect in the school.
