● Lubayna Johns: I find this post quite dis­turb­ing. Yes, to each his own, but it is also wrong to gen­er­alise the pop­u­la­tion.

No one per­son should put down another’s de­ci­sion to choose a ca­reer, whether it be a home­maker, doc­tor, lawyer, etc. It isn’t about whose ca­reer choice is bet­ter, but about what you want for your­self. Also, you can’t live your life in a sealed box with the fear of wrong­do­ing.

Many peo­ple in past times, as well as present, are faced with the right or wrong choice to make on a daily ba­sis, and yes we all do fal­ter at times, as we are but hu­man, but that’s a learn­ing curve and risk we all have to take in or­der to live and learn in this crazy world.

There are too many parts of this nar­row-minded ar­ti­cle to ad­dress and it sad­dens me that some­one could think the worst of a woman who wants to pur­sue a ca­reer of her choice. You cant force a woman to like sew­ing, cook­ing or bak­ing as a “job” if it isn’t her pas­sion.

And for the record, zina isn’t only found on cam­pus and work­ing places, it some­times is in the home of that home­maker as well. No one per­son is per­fect, so judg­ment is left to Al­lah alone. Just my 2 cents.

● A’isha Pan­dor: I com­pletely agree with you. Many women find their pas­sions when on cam­pus. Also, the en­vi­ron­ment is wrong, but aside from the aca­demic as­pect, there’s so much that a per­son learns about life while on cam­pus.

It gives a per­son room to grow as an in­di­vid­ual. I’m not jus­ti­fy­ing the en­vi­ron­ment be­cause no mat­ter how great it is to have a de­gree or to sus­tain one­self, at the end of the day, it is Al­lah we have to face. If Al­lah says it’s wrong, we can­not jus­tify it. No mat­ter the con­se­quences.

● Khadija Abad: Is­lamic ed­u­ca­tion is im­por­tant but please don’t dis­cour­age women from ed­u­cat­ing them­selves about this world. In­stead rather en­cour­age them to main­tain their hayaa whilst out in the world seek­ing ed­u­ca­tion or em­ploy­ment.

● Ubaidul­lah Fazel El­lahi: That’s rub­bish. I am in uni­ver­sity and many of the Mus­lim girls up­hold them­selves with hon­our. They may not wear their cloaks, but they do dress in a mod­est man­ner. This is the sort of think­ing and the men­tal­ity that gifted the Mid­dle East and the “Is­lamic world” rad­i­cal groups who have abused fe­males. And is this per­son who sup­pos­edly at­tended uni­ver­sity im­ply­ing that women who had ca­reers have never pro­duced Mus­lim males that have served Is­lam whether it be in a spir­i­tual or ed­u­ca­tional mat­ter?

● Adela Bham; Some­times it pays to have higher ed­u­ca­tion. Cook­ing and bak­ing doesn’t al­ways pay the bills.

● Shaakira Ebrahim Aboobaker: Ab­so­lutely dis­gust­ing ar­ti­cle. I’m a fe­male doc­tor. Shame on you for dis­cour­ag­ing ed­u­ca­tion which is men­tioned nu­mer­ous times in the Qur’an for all of mankind.
