Is this an ideal path of education for a Muslim girl?

Is this an ideal path of education for a Muslim girl? Topic: Old fashion sign writing courses
July 18, 2019 / By Christabel
Question: OK, so last year I started my Journalism (Print-Based Media) course and I am HATING it at the moment. I do like writing, but the course is ALL about assignments and deadlines. There are no exams. I thought I'd prefer it this way, I didn't think I'd be vying for a way out! Last summer (before I started my Journalism course), I was looking around at different courses my College had to offer. . .And I came across the BTEC National Diploma in Horse Management. Due to being too concerned about how I looked at the time (pretty unfit) and not being able to speak to my parents about what I wanted to do, I just went ahead with the Journalism course. The thing is, I'm not going to do anything with my education. I have simple beliefs. I want to be the one staying at home and attending to household responsibilities and my children, and for my husband to be the one working and earning for his family. Yes, I'm old fashioned like that. It shouldn't matter what I'm studying then, should it? It's all just for fun. Soo, I'm taking a year off this next academic year, and after that I was thinking to sign up for the BTEC National Diploma in Horse Management. . .My question is, is this not an ideal path of education for a Muslim girl? Because when I told my Dad that there's a new Horse Management course at my College, he frowned. I read somewhere on Y!A that Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) encouraged horse riding as something we should take lessons on. So what's so bad about Horse Management? I'd only be learning about horses, how to take care of them, and bettering my knowledge of them. Is there anything wrong with that? "Everything devoid of the remembrance of Allah Ta'ala is Lahw save four actions; walking between 2 targets (while practicing archery), training or disciplining of one's horse, amusing oneself with the company of one's wife, learning of the art of swimming." — Targheeb Wa Tarheeb (Volume 2, Page 389; Dar Ihya al-Turaath) "Teach your children swimming, archery and horse-riding." — Omar ibn Al-Khattab (2nd Caliphate) I don’t believe in stereotypes. I think the way I do only because I, myself, want to. Suppose your job fails and you have to live off the edge? If one were to think the way a 'clever' person does, well, life would be all about worrying. Not to be rude, but insecure people show such insolence.

Augusta Originally Answered: Does Muslim agree with this phenomenon that religion Islam and today’s Muslim are two different things?
I've heard this argument before, but I don't think it does anything helpful. A religion IS what its adherents do. If Muslims are destructive, then that's the "real" Islam. If they're peaceful, then *that's* what Islam really is. Religion doesn't exist on the pages of a book. A book is just paper and ink. Religion exists in what people believe and do. This whole business about "real Islam" and "real Muslims" doesn't really say anything - it's just proof by definition, fallacious thinking.

If you talk about the religion Islam, I can give you any number of specific ayats & hadees which clearly allow slavery, sex without marriage to your female slaves, child marriage, revenge, massacares, death for insulting the prophet/quran, death for leaving the religion and so on. From this aspect Islam is a liberal religion. If you are a terrorist you can get ayats & hadees justifying terrorism, if you are a peaceful muslim you can also get ayats and hadees calling for peace. If you like monogamy you will get your hadees, a polygamist will also get the scripture he wants & so on. In other words one can "cherry pick" what one does or does not want. And I would advise you not to be influenced by either pro or anti muslim websites but to do your reading yourself of the quran & hadees, as these websites present two extreme views. To answer your question about muslims being different from what the religion says, well I think most choose to follow the negative aspects & a minority follow the positive aspects.

Wa Salaam, not to be rude, but that's not being "old-fashioned," that's being stupid. Sure there's nothing wrong if you want your future husband to earn more and have a strong education and successful career, but to just put all of your hopes into one basket thinking someone's going to be your nest egg like this is 4 AD is absolutely ludicrous and feeds into the stereotype that women need only be in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant waiting for her husband to get home from work. Suppose your marriage fails, or he cheats on you or he dies early/unexpectedly? What, you're going to run back home to your parents? What happens if they die, you'll just be out in the cold with no real education, marketable skills, career or serious means of supporting yourself? I consider myself "old-fashioned" too, but that doesn't preclude one from bettering themselves educationally, individually and career-wise. If YOU want to do this "fun" as you call it, then by all means do so, as I assume you're an adult capable of making your own choices, but please do not associate this archaic, lack of motivation beyond pumping out someone's kids way of life with ALL young Muslim women.

if ur going to go to school u might as well make it something that will count. you plan your life one way but you never know how it will turn out. what if your husband gets laid off of work, or get injured, or sick. what if you get divorced and have to raise your children. you need a degree that actually counts.

Stafford Originally Answered: Muslim and muslim converts! music, concerts, tattoos and piercings?
Bismillah Rahman Raheem Assalamu'alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Music: Some Muslims believe that Music is prohibited/sinful in Islam. According to Islam: Music that leads to sinful acts such as drugs, sex, violence, etc... is absolutely sinful in Islam. But otherwise, how would it be sinful when Allah Almighty Himself allowed it to Prophet David peace be upon him? Narrated Abu Musa: "That the Prophet said to him 'O Abu Musa! You have been given one of the musical wind-instruments of the family of David.' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues of the Qur'an, Volume 6, Book 61, Number 568)" According to the Islamic group of scholars, music that is deemed to be free of un-Islamic and unethical themes and messages, the same is true of musical instruments so long as they are not used for the above, have been considered as permissible. But we have to stress that Islam clearly prohibits mixed dancing of males and females. Tattoos: Al-Bukhaari and Muslim narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “Allaah has cursed the women who do tattoos and the women who have this done, the women who pluck their eyebrows, and the women who file their teeth for the purpose of beautification and change the creation of Allaah.” Tattooing permanently disfigures the face and other parts of the body with colored pigment and repulsive designs. Some Arabs, especially women, are in the habit of tattooing large areas of their bodies. People of certain religious sects tattoo pictures of their deities or religious rituals on their hands and chests. The pain and agony that the person experiences from the needles piercing skin add to these images. Because of all of this, both the tattooer and the one who is tattooed have been cursed. Piercing: First of all, it should be made clear that it is permissible for women only to pierce their ears as a form of enhancing their beauty. The proof of this permission is based on the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, when he prayed on the day of `Eid and came with Bilal, his Companion, he ordered the women to pay Zakah, and some of them took their earrings off and threw it (donated it) to the Prophet.
