Q: I’m a college student and something has been bothering me lately. I study for all my exams and everything but I just can’t get good grades. I study almost everyday, I know everything in the exam it’s just that when I get the exam back I either failed or got a really low score. Also, there is always something that happens that end up making me depressed. I also pray to Allah to make everything better, I just wanted to know if there is anything that I should do to help me.
A: The hadith commands women to remain within the confines of their homes and not to leave their homes without a valid excuse. In this lies true respect and honour for them as well as it is a means for them safeguarding their chastity and deen. The culture of women leaving their homes to work in the corporate environment amidst men is a culture that is totally alien to Islaam.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
