Next question.

00:00:02--> 00:00:47

Muslim from Pakistan he asks, as you know, in Islam, free mixing of men and woman is not permitted. However, our educational institutes are playing a big role in promoting it. seminars and functions are organized without any restrictions in universities that promote vulgarity. Is it permissible to do business by opening universities that promotes such things? If a student does unethical, immoral activities that are against Islam, due to the open environment of a university, does the portion of that sin goes to the person who runs that business and provides that platform?

00:00:52--> 00:00:57

Abdullah Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said it is mentioned in say Bukhari while in number seven

00:00:59--> 00:01:04

that there is no greater fitna for men, then the fitna of woman.

00:01:08--> 00:01:44

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran in surah. Chapter 24 was some petty colonial mini in a boom in a bizarre way I follow furuta home, say to the believing man that he should lower his gaze and Goddess modesty. The next was off to the new chapter 24 verse number 31, Allah subhanaw taala says, say to the believing woman, that she should lower her gaze and garden modesty and display not a beauty except what is already there off, and tell her to draw her wheel over bosoms and display not her beauty except in front of their husbands, their fathers, their sons. And there's a big list of myrams of close relatives who cannot marry.

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

So basically, their six criteria for a job that I mentioned the glorious for an ad in the authentic Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:01:54--> 00:02:33

And when you're running an organization, when you're running a school, a college etc, you should try to follow the criteria of hijab. The first is the extent for the woman it is a complete body should be covered, the only parts that can be seen are the face and the hands up to the wrist, for the man it is formed the navel to the knee. The second is the clothes the where it should be loose, it should not be tight fitting, it should not reveal the finger, the third, it should not be translucent or transparent. The fourth, it should not be so glamorous, that attracts the opposite gender, the fifth, it should not be that of the opposite gender. And the sixth is that it should not

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

resemble that of the unbeliever.

00:02:36--> 00:02:48

So these are basically six criteria for HR. Now, when you're running a school, when you're running a college, when you're running a university and Institute an organization, you should try to follow the HR.

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

It is very important.

00:02:53--> 00:03:01

And as far as free mixing is concerned, whether you're running an organization and Institute you should see to add that there is no free mixing.

00:03:03--> 00:03:32

If it is a school, if it is a college, you should try to have single gender colleges, single gender schools. If you want to have both the genders, then you should have separate prices for women and separate prices for men, separate prices for the male separate promises for the females. And according to statistics, single gender universities, they have better results than mixed gender universities. Because in mixed gender universities,

00:03:33--> 00:03:38

a student is more interested in policing the opposite gender rather than studying.

00:03:39--> 00:03:48

When you run an organization or school, a college or university, it should be within the purview of the Islamic Sharia, you should maintain the hijab

00:03:50--> 00:04:13

and Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran in surah HAZOP chapter makari three verse 59. Yeah, are you gonna be you only as radical what unethical when you say I mean, you demean aluminium Angelababy him or prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the believing woman, that when they go abroad to put on the cloak, so that they shall be recognized and it will prevent them from being molested.

00:04:16--> 00:04:44

Now, coming to your last part of the question, wherein you said, will you be responsible for running such organizations that promote free mixing, if you are the head of the organization, and due to your irresponsibility, there is free mixing, then you will be held responsible. You will be held responsible for this act of yours. You should see to it that there is proper segregation of men and women in your organization.
