Q. Assalāmu ‘alaykum anna (brother), I would like your advice.
I have about a year and a half to go at Ryerson (University).
I am in IT and it is a field such that it keep changing and one has to keep updating oneself but with that degree i can get a decent job in the Middle East in shā Allāh. But this type of job I fear will take up a lot of my time which I can spend on (seeking) knowledge.
Or I can go into trades like electrician which are good jobs here but are poorly paid in the Middle East so I do not think I will be able to do Hijrah. But I can seek ‘ilm from here in shā Allāh and make trips to Yemen after saving money.
What should I do? Finish IT or switch to trades?
