    How can I pay my tuition fees?

    My parents won't fund my education, they've already spent a lot of their savings on helping my brothers through university, and they aren't that keen on my going anyway.

    I qualify for a bursary, but that is still significantly short of the tuition fees.

    It will be difficult to find a job, most jobs will be mixed gender, and I am not comfortable in that situation.

    Can anyone suggest any halal loans?
    Salaam,

    Recently Shaykh Haitham Al-Haddad in London spoke about the permissability of SFE student loans on the principle that Islam does not recognise it as interest in our definition of it. This kind of loan is unique as it does not have to be paid until you make a profit (until you make a decent amount of money) so don't worry about it and go for the tuition fee (not the maintenance one).

    Should be all good!

    In terms of a job, depends if you're a male or female (as male's are obligated to feed the family). Visitor message me on my page if you want further advice on that.

    When you graduate from uni, the job will be mixed gender. Uni is mixed gender. What is the point in even going uni?

    That's a great idea, thanks

    Do you think that will be enough to cover the costs of university?
    No worries

    Tbh I don't think it'll cover the whole cost, but if you have family/friends to help pay as well or any savings or whatever, then I think you can do it!

    Student loans don't require interest I'm pretty sure, that's why they're student loans. If they do then oh maaaaaaaan
    They do...

    Laughed at this post for a while.

    Anyho - work is work, and working with men isn't haram - keep the relationships strictly business if you're that scared
    I'd do it if I had to, but I would not be comfortable with it

    No it won't. You have to pay for a year upfront so unless you can get the mosque you work at to pay you 9k before you start uni, I doubt it.
    Perhaps I could take a gap year then

    At the end you probably won't pay all of it anyway (since its written off after a certain period if unpaid) so you may not be paying back more than you borrowed?

    As-Salamualaykum,

    I am applying to uni next year, and I am also a Muslim. However I think you've got a few things mixed up. Firstly, there are banks where you can get halal loans, and for the sake of education I think a small amount of interest may be unavoidable and tolerable. Secondly, the government gives you a loan to cover all tuition fees and living costs, so you will not have to pay it off until you get a job after uni (you only start paying it once you start earning a minimum amount of £17,495 per year).

    Finally, I can understand that you may be uncomfortable in a mixed gender group - however segregation is not Islamic, only cultural. In many places (especially the UK) many Muslims feel the need to segregate men and women, and this is completely acceptable if either party feels uncomfortable. However it is in no way a necessity in Islam! I for one am a Muslim who feels comfortable around both genders, and most places in the UK (besides mosques) will be mixed gender. There is absolutely nothing about this that is anti-Islamic.

    Halal sandwiches simply require halal meat. Halal loans simply require no interest. I don't quite see where your problem is...?

    I'm quite puzzled - could you enlighten me as to what part of Islam enslaves women and blows up children? I have been a Muslim all my life and read the whole Qur'an but have not come across any such teachings yet!

    Unfortunately, I have to agree - most of the world does, and always has been, multi-gender without segregation. I think it would be hard and unreasonable to ask for a segregated workplace.

    To compensate for the risk of some people not repaying the amount that they were lent, and to adjust for the rate of inflation. Simple.

    Student loans (from government) are halal. they are not untrustworthy loan sharks, or high interest scammers. that the only loan that you could get im afraid.
    if you want to study and live in the real world, you need to learn to be in mixed men and women situations.
    You can lower your gaze and politely refuse to shake hands or contact men, but other than that you working intellectually with men is not haram.
