Assalamu alaikum respected ulema, I am a male nurse from Bosnia and my question is rather complicated or shaytan made it look that way. I couldn’t find any other solution other than asking you for help. MY QUESTION: I enrolled in a private nursery college, that had a department close to me, but the center was 150 km away. In department there were no lectures offered, only in center. In department we could only take exams. Because it was too far and I didnt want my parents to stuggle, I was skipping most of the lectures and I never had an issue by doing so. I finished my college and soon I should be working. After I graduated I had constant dark thoughts that I did wrong and that my income is going to be haram. I sent a question to my Uni and they said that the lectures are mandatory, but when I was attending noone forced me to go and I took exams and passed them. When I graduated I realized of the flaw and that I didnt get much knowledge (or I did but it was not long term) and I started forcing myself to learn more and more. I didnt forge any signatures and I didnt cheat on exams. Is my income haram?


Wa’alaykum as Salām wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

In the current scenario, your income would not be classified as Ḥarām (unlawful).

Your responsibility is to make sure that you complete your duties correctly, and fulfil the demands of your job.
