Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
I am a high school student and my question is: What can I do about the women at my school? They are my teachers and class mates and I have to talk to them and look at them.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question ( What should medical students do in lectures given by female teachers?
) to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him), who replied as follows:
People like these students have no other option, so 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 the lecture.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
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.
