Q: I dont understand – you say that a female should go to a female doctor, yet you firmly discourage especially females to study – isnt this double standards? Please explain.
A: If you wish to understand then you have women that are practising from their homes with all pardah requirements. You also have non-Muslim women physicians. What stops you from going to them? They are not obligated by the shar`ee laws.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
