      Hmm, they've gone now, but yesterday most users had a yellow (or possibly light green - i'm colourblind) background behind their usernames. But it wasn't every user, and it wasn't showing online users or users who recently logged in, I eliminated those possiblities

        i agree
        medicine means TOO MANY LOOOONG hours
        and as muslims, we need to put our deen first

        the sacrifice required is NOT worth the benefits you get from medicine.
        so what if engineering is not as prestigious as medicine.

        and with engineering, you can still earn good money
        and can travel the world if u wish to

        and you generally dont get stressed out with killer hours

        and Allah ta'ala knows best

          Completely agree, but it is a duty on the community that some members of the community must become doctors and nurses, since we do need these.
          Imagine when we establish an Islamic state, we have bunch of engineers to design and build hospitals but we have no doctors or nurses to take care of the patients inside then we would have to rely on the kufaar for their help and their medicine, and they might prescribe things which are haram.
          So we need Muslims in every halaal field of study

            Re: Engineering or Medicine

            I did engineering, specialised in civil engineering. The past 3 years have been very tough in my industry in the UK.

            Someone mentioned that the hours put into studying medicine are not worth the end benefits. I disagree with that. You can go anywhere in the world and get a job if you're a doctor qualified in the west. Its an honourable and respected profession, on par with teachers but paying a lot more obviously. Engineers are now 10 to a penny, every other person who can handle a spanner is calling himself an engineer now.

              I think doctors are fairly well paid although the training is gruelling and the hours are long. It also depends what speciality you pursue. Orthopaedic surgery or plastic surgery = boatloads of money, but you will have to work 60+ hours a week!

              For a better lifestyle, dermatology or general practice may be ideal. But generally, doctors are paid quite well. They are almost always ranked amongst the higher earners. Cardiologists for example are paid $300,000 in the US.

              Positives of medicine are:
              - It's an immensely rewarding profession. You are making a positive difference to someone's life.
              - It's an extremely interesting and varied career with many options including academic medicine and medical research.
              - You will always have a job. A very stable profession.
              - Pay can be good depending if you are willing to work for it.
              - An important skillset that can be used anywhere on the planet.

              Negatives:
              - Long training and long hours.
              - It's a lifestyle commitment.
              - Can be stressful. You have a lot of responsibility on your hands.

              However, IMO, positives outweigh negatives.

              I don't know much about engineering so I can't comment.

              My advice is to get some work experience at your local hospital and see if you like it. Then you may decide your options from there.

                  you can also die on the way there. you aren't guaranteed to live into your 40s and 50s when the real money is made. and oh, you will not be there for your kids because you are always working OR you will have kids later on so when they are teens, you are in your 50s. a grandpa. there are severe tradeoffs on average when going into professional medicine.

                        LOL that's a lie.

                        It's more difficult for a woman to balance her medical career versus a family life, yes, but there are still options to work part time (even for your entire life).

                        I actually know a qualified cardiologist who has a wife and kid. And he seems to also have enough time to do what he wants in his spare time.

                        Hundreds of people die in car accidents everyday. Guess you shouldn't leave the house in case you become a fender bender!

                          My fiance is on engineering and he loves what he do. It requires a lot of math and physics, also hints of creativity. But the study time is not as long as meds methinks. And the job is pretty stable too. At least for engineering you won't get any risk be sued for malpractice LOL.
