The guy at the local Masjid says go for 40 days jamaat after A Levels. I said insha Allah. Oh, those TJ's.

 

On the real, I'll be off to Uni insha Allah. Or, if it proves successful, self employed insha Allah.

Rofi you need a specific goal in life. But mainly you need something for your bread and butter. Graduates on average get £250,000 more in their working life than non-graduates. So it's a good idea to go University especially in the UK where it is FREE or really cheap. Do not miss the opportunity!!!

 

If you're doing chemistry, I suggest going into medicince, gauranteed job in the UK.

i'm in Year 12 so will be applying to Unis next year. :D i'll go into Medicine or another Science degree.

 

i want to get married whilst studying at Uni since i will be very old by the time the degree finishes.

 

i don't know if i'll leave home to go Uni. i've seen the Student Halls of Manchester Uni and i hate them. it's a very unIslamic atmosphere... the free-mixing, the smell of alcohol, the posters the guys put up... i think living in a flat with some sisters would be nice.

Best to do medicine. Doing other science degreees may not lead to work, e.g biomed. With medicine you either become a GP or you can specialise or even go abroad and work in developing coutries offering your services (and if you find a husband that agrees to that you know he's decent LOL) Most likely you'd marry a medic, I mean my friend can't see himself marrying anyone else due to his schedule LOL

sorry i missed your question.

 

A levels are the final two years of school. A levels are voluntary. you choose what subjects you want to do. students usually choose 3 or 4. after A -levels you have finished school. and then it's Uni or Job or whatever else.

Omg in one more year I'll be starting my A levels...

I cant decide what I'll choose to do after that..

 

Im thinking to become a teacher (either in Health or English/literature)

 

but I really really really want to be a Labor & Delivery Nurse because that is like the most amazing thing.... Subhan'Allah

but I dont think I could handle all the work to become one....So I think thats out of the question..

 

I would like to do something with kids Insh'Allah...

 

Oh yea...and I was thinking of becoming a Muslim counseler but my friend is trying to convince me out of that......because she said I will get sick of listening to peoples problems...

I dont think I could ever be one anyway...

 

I was thinking about possibly working with kids with special needs, but my dad completely blew that idea :D He said whenever I come across someone with special needs, be nice to them and help them out, but its to much work to work with them all the time...

 

So....I guess teacher is the only thing left :D

 

Allahu alam

 

Or maybe I'll just get married and be a house wife :D

Asalaamulaykum,

 

Inshallah will be doing medicine :D :D !!! Yeh sis Saufia, I would definitly say that if you have to live away from home, it much better for sisters to live in private accomadation, rather than uni halls. The atmosphere in your own little place will be inshallah much better :D

 

Definitly agree brother ahm, working in UK is an excellent way of getting a prosperous job...however, I really don't know about the idea of studying being cheap?! :D

 

If your in the US, A-levels are part of college yrs (12/13 grade).

I'm not talking about career, I'm talking about something decent for your bread and butter, something secure. You would be more useful to Islam being a doctor than running a grocery shop or market stall.

 

Mujahada: try see if you can get some work experience as a children's nurse or related fields in your spare time this summer as that will give you a good idea if you can handle it. Being a housewife is good mashallah, but you need skills in case of hard times. Also somethings you can do part time, like being a Muslim counselor and do actual practical work for the Ummah :D

 

We need skilled and professional people who are religious, with the Islamic outlook and ethics. We've got enough religious "bums" as it is.

No you don't understand. We need Muslims with good jobs who maintain their Islamic outlook. Yes there are Muslims with good jobs, but most were not practising to start with.

 

We got enough scholars, we need people to develop Muslim industry make the Ummah self-sufficient. What are docotrs going to do? Research, invent new medicines and treatment, and so on.

 

What we do need is a lot more intelligent scholars, as these days our religious ones are not the most intelligent ones.

You can be poor. The whole point in being rich is giving all the money to the poor and leaving little for yourself. If you are rich but not practising, you will not care for others or philanthropy.

 

I think Uthman (RA) was very rich. So was Khadija (RA).

 

Being rich is not bad, it's how you spend your money.

i agree with brother ahm... we need to do something good in this world... use the brains we've been given.

 

Being rich is not bad

i'm sure there's a hadith that says that ^

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “He is doomed, the slave of the dinar and the slave of the dirham†(Reported by al-Bukhari, no. 2730),

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) further said: “Every nation has its fitnah (trial or temptation), and the fitnah of my Ummah is wealth.†(Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 2336).

 

Wealth is fitnah for this Ummah. True, Sayyidina Uthman (Radiallahu Anhu) and Sayyida Khadija (Radiallahu Anha) were rich, but they gave away their money. Unlike our rich of today, the wealthy Sahabah never held onto their money. They lived in the most humble of homes and spent their money on the community, not on themselves.

 

I understand your point brother ahm... But I don't think you can say the religious without secular education are not intelligent. There are many alims who don't have secular education but are very good doing their job. The Ulama don't need secular education, they need fear of Allah while doing their job, and thats what aids them in doing it right.

 

InshaAllah I'm gonna go to college after high school this fall... Might go for something computer-related. :D :D I'll figure out what I want to be for sure in my first semester.. :D

Although i am working hard to study medicine when i make it to university soon inshaAllah, i also have a 50-50 chance of getting off to a military career. My family has a history of being in the military. I dont look forward to it though.

 

Maybe if i become a military doctor, it'll serve both purporses. InshaAllah, its not easy, but i ask you all to pray for my future.

By being rich I did not mean hoarding wealth for one's own pleaser, I meant being rich earning lots of money and putting it to use.

 

I wasn't talking about secular education implying intelligence, (although in the past there were sscholars who were multi-disciplined.).

Im sorry but how are people here defining secular education, because subjects like maths, science, history, literature, geography, languages etc are all very important in Islam. Infact we know that muslims were at the forfront of the develpoments and progess made throughout history in these subjects.

 

None of these i feel can be defined as 'secular' because they have been a part of Islamic cilvisation for centuries. Even having a degree is not secular as educational achievements of indviduals was acknowlegded in the golden era for muslims.

 

i think its important not to dismiss such education and say they are nothing when much of Islamic history is filled figures who shaped the future with their knowledge in them fields. In addition, these people where able to excel in their religon and knowlegde of other subjects. If anything, faith in Allah s.w.t and knowlegde of Islam spurred them further to achieve greater things.

Anyways inshallah im going university. Cant wait to go inshallah because i'll be finally studying my favourite subjects. also my chosen uni has got large muslim population and a big Islamic society so inshallah that'll be good.
