Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. I am a Muslim student and I would like your advice/opinion on careers that you believe are in demand and will be beneficial for the Muslim Ummah. I would also like to know the exact role of an Imam, and how they can earn a living to sustain themselves? Also, is it usual that a Muslim for example, would be an engineer as his primary job, and also give Islamic lectures and learn about Islam in his free time. Also, are all Islamic lecturers, Imams, etc., only studying Qur’an and Sunnah full time without any other job or career? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have a question regarding a hadith that says, "Differences (of opinions) in my Ummah are a blessing." Some people say that this hadith is a fabrication and is a lie against the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Please comment on this.
