Learning from male

Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.


A woman can learn from a male person as long as there is no isolation, whether in a physical space or internet chat room. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When a man isolates himself with a woman, Shaytan will join them as a third companion.” (At-Tirmidhi)


Since we humans are weak and can fall into temptations, we must avoid such circumstances altogether. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “One should shun that which is doubtful for by doing so, one is better enabled to guard his faith and honor. And by committing the doubtful one may end up doing the Haram. (Muslim).


Therefore, I would advise you against learning from a male person unless you are doing so in a classroom setting with other men and women. Otherwise, you should look for a female teacher; there is no shortage of female teachers.


Allah Almighty knows best.
