Woman studying at university

Question:

A sister sent me this and is asking if this verdict is correct: “Basically a woman should stay in her house to keep away from being mixed with men. If there is no one who sponsors her and she needs to work to get her necessities, and getting work requires a degree or diplomas, then it is permissible for her to study in a mixed university provided there is no alternate for her. On the other hand, if she has to study in a university she has to meet the following conditions. 1. Her presence is limited to attending lectures only. 2. She has to wear complete Hijab. She should not put any perfume nor expose her adornment while she is out of her house. 3. She should avoid sitting next to gents. 4. Talking to men should be limited to the minimum necessary. Moreover, her speech should not be too complaisant and should not contain any matter that is shameful or might cause temptation. Allah knows best.” Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Yes, the above-mentioned verdict is correct regarding that particular situation, however it is not a general ruling. Also, before attending such a university, she should initially endeavor to take online classes to safeguard herself from that environment. For more details regarding intermingling and its prohibition, kindly refer to the following link:
