Doing Research for a Student in Return for Payment: Permissible?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Some teachers ask their students to do research and give the students grades for that. Is it permissible for me to do this research for the student in return for payment? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Taking a Student Loan in the Eyes of Shari`ah
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have been quite ignorant for some time in many aspects of Islam. I am in the process of learning how to read the Qur’an, and I have learned how to pray. My question is that during my "ignorant" period I took OSAP to fund my university education. Now I am told by many friends that what I am doing is considered haram. If one cannot afford to pay for university and they take a loan like OSAP, is this considered haram? Jazakum Allah khayran.
