  • doubts about the course i have chosen

    Salams,
    I am currently studying a levels and I have applied for a fine art course but now I am having doubts. I love art and itís my passion but in the first year for a few weeks u have to do life drawing which I really donít want to do. Iím being drawn to doing something like Islamic studies but now itís too late to apply and Iíll probably have to take a gap year and work which I donít mind doing but if I tell my parents this they wonít understand and probably wonít let me as I have been wanting to do this for years. Doing art as a course which is western art is really controversial because you step into a lot of areas that goes against Islam and because I have started to become more aware of this, itís making me question about the career that I want to go into.

    Do you feel that art is a subject that is questionable?
    Does anybody do an art degree and have you found areas of it that make you feel uncomfortable?
    Does anybody do Islamic studies and what is it like?

    are from the UK?
    cos if you are, when you finish your A levels and get your results, you can apply through adjustment on UCAS to a course at any university that you woud want. you don't have to do a gap.

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

        not as such, it goes into more fields like painting and things ... Its good that her course allows her to do that ... what uni does she go to, if its in the UK?
        Ive emailed them if i can get out of the life drawing classes .. i guess ill just have 2 see what they say ...

          i dont really know much about it, but just make sure you do your research on the islamic viewpoint (you can use this site if you want i just typed in a search for you, theyre bound to have info http://www.islamqa.com/en/search2/dr...AllWords/t,q,a) and then research the course content, because you dont want to do it and then regret it because you have to do something against islam. even if the actual course content is okay, think about the options you could do afterwards in terms of careers and whether theyd be permissable aswell.

          all the best
          Patience...

            You can get out unless some colleges are different but know if you're gonna do art even further like for uni, your portfolio will have a huge chunk missing. Life drawing (was for me) a core unit. I didn't do it either, I left art all together and alhamdulillah Allah gave me something so much better.

            My advise to you is that make plenty of duaa for guidance, and if you really feel it'll harm your deen, leave it. Don't worry or fret and think you aren't getting anywhere in life, it happened to me until Allah gave me an opportunity not many people receive. Alhamdulillah, if you want to study Islam, go for it. Best thing.
