Some Islamic Question
Asslam-u-Allaikum Wareham Tullahi Wabarak Atuhu,
I want to ask some questions,
1. I want to become hafiza but my father want to make me doctor, I am learning in 9 class. How do I convince my father?
2.What should a woman hide from non-mahram, such as hand and foot?
3. On what hand should a woman apply henna to the back or straight ? Can a woman go to marriage with a hennan impost?
4. Can a woman hear her voice to a man?
WaʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh
- More than convincing your father is the aspect of turning to Allāh ﷻ in Duʿā, asking him to accept you in this regard and, being the controller of hearts, to ask of Him to incline your father’s heart towards you treading the path of memorizing the Qur’ān.
Since you are still in Class 9, you may also suggest to him to complete the memorization of Qur’ān prior to commencing with your studies in the medical field.
You may also consider doing both at the same time if you have the ability and capability to manage them.
Together with the above is to read up on the many virtues related to memorizing the Qur’ān and the numerous rewards promised by Allāh ﷻ, then to explain these to him and what will be in his favor in the hereafter.
- The entire body of a woman should be concealed from a non-Maḥram, with the exception of her hands, face, and feet.
- It would be best to apply Henna to the palms and/or nails by merely staining them.
With regard to Henna designs, the following points should be considered:
- It should not be of animate beings.
- It should not be displayed and shown off to non-Maḥram men.
- It should not be done in imitation of immoral or disbelieving women.
- It should not be such that it depicts the symbols of other religions or corrupted beliefs.
- If the design is being done by someone else, it should not be a non-Mahram.
- It should not be in those places where immoral and non-Muslim women usually have it e.g. above the buttocks, above the breasts, above or below the navel, etc.
- It should not be made with the intention of resembling a tattoo.
- In principle, the voice of a woman is not ʿAwrah. However, in the presence of non-Maḥram/strange men, she should ensure that her voice is not heard in a manner that could potentially attract them towards her and bring about lust.
