If i want to learn to be an alima and be a doctor as well is that possible? I know someone who is a doctor and she thinks this is not really possible and doesn't know anyone like this. So I am wondering is there anyone who has done this or knows someone who has.
Either they went to madresa first and became an alima or became a doctor then became an alima. I don't see why someone cant do it if they really have the desire coz you can help people in the deen and dunya, but she says i dont understand and also that darul ulooms don't have the right standard of education and that if someone went to university afterwards they wouldn't fit in, and wouldn't be able to follow deen properly, so i want to prove that she is wrong, and you can be an alima and learn deen then study too and wear islamic clothes jubba etc. (i know purdah is not allowed but some alimas don't wear purdah so it's not that bad i think).
thank you, jazakallah.
