There are no schools in his city that are not mixed and he only has a few months left in school
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
I'm a young brother living in Canada and raised here. I currently attend a mixed kafir school(currently im my final year 12).Although I have read in your web-site that mixed schools are haram (and I personally don't doubt that my self). the only Islamic school in my area is also a mixed school. I was not aware until recently that mixed schools are Haram in Islamic shar'eeah.Also my mom would be greatly heart broken if I left this kafir school. my qouestion is; am I allowed to complete my high school education in this kafir school? which I will have to stay in for the next 5 month.

Praise be to Allaah.
The basic principle is that it is not permissible for anyone to study in mixed schools, because of the evils and haraam things that result from mixing, as is obvious to everyone.
If there is an urgent or genuine need to study, and there is no option other than mixed schools, then there is nothing wrong with you completing your studies, but you must lower your gaze and avoid the causes of fitnah (temptation), and remember that Allaah is always watching you, in secret and in the open.
Shaykh Ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) said concerning the one who is faced with this problem of mixed schools: They have to try hard to lower their gaze, protect themselves and keep away from temptation which could lead them into haraam actions. If he notices that he is starting to slip towards something haraam, he should stop attending. End quote from the answer to question no. 6118.
We ask Allaah to make you steadfast in word and deed.
And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
