    Well then you can't call it a storybook if you've never read it.
    Umm, why? It's got stories in it - it's a storybook.

    Hmm...weird. I've never thought of the Quraan as a storybook. Besides, it has more than just stories in it, so I guess it can't be called a storybook. It can be called a book, but it can't be described as a storybook. It sounds like you're belittling it.

    Perhaps you're being a bit hypersensitive. It's got stories in it - to my mind, that's a storybook. Same as the Bible. How is that 'belittling' it?!

    Wow, you people would consider working hard for many years to enter a competitive profession only to jack it all in because of a storybook. Amazing!
    The kuffar would call it a storybook, MUSLIMS would say otherwise!

    Most finance careers, including accounting, actuarial, investment banking, investment management and others involve working with debt. In western societies, this involves riba (interest) which is forbidden in Islam. Working in any place that deals with interest and helping these firms is haram.

    I would like to let you know because I didn't know about this until recently. It's astounding how many jobs indirectly deal with debt and this poses a challenge for Muslims. I'm not saying "don't do these careers if you're muslim" but I am letting you know that the Quran forbids these activities.
    Your username proves to be just a tad contradictory.

    So because of religion, you are going to scrap what you're interested in?

    So what about all the accountants/finance workers in majority Muslim countries like the Arab world? Should they quit? And do those nations not need these positions?

    I think you should think twice before making these sweeping comments. Calling something haram when it's not isn't a small matter.

    Those jobs mentioned in the OP are very broad, and each one needs to be critiqued properly and consulted with by someone qualified before we can say whether it is permissible to work in such a role or not.

    I used to be interested in it, before I found out about how riba (interest) is involved. It is not permissible in Islam due to this. I will find a new passion to pursue, one that is permissible inshallah

    That's why I made this thread, I don't want other Muslims to make th mistake I almost made
