Question 9: A female would like to seek knowledge, but she is very busy with the affairs of the home i.e., having several children. What is your advice for her, and what should she do?
Answer: As we’ve mentioned in a previous answer, it is obligatory for her to learn the Fard Ayn, from the affairs of Tawheed, Eemaan and other affairs of worship such as purification, prayer, Umrah and Hajj, if she wants to make Hajj and the likes of that. Therefore, she should request that her husband provides her with the cassette tapes and materials so that she can learn from them. Likewise, if there is something that she is uncertain about, she should ask the People of Knowledge.
