Working under a male senior

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a single female and have been studying something in the business field not really realising the extent of this. I started working at a company
recently and there is a male senior who I have to approach when I do not know what to do. 

  1. Should I be leaving this job?
  2. If don’t end up working after the studying will it be a waste I commited?


A: It is not permissible for you to remain in this job. At once hand in your resignation and abstain from it. May Allah Ta`ala reward you for that.

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