Women attending universities

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Do you’ll have any article/detailed fatwa explaining the impermissibility of women attending university to become doctors, with the reason that ‘we need Muslim female doctors’. Many have this understanding. Even some ulama. How should one reply to them?


A: We have prepared a detailed article regarding women studying in universities. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/19114

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