Should I Leave My Studies To Provide For My Family? | Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan

Description

Question:
I’m a student and my family’s financial condition is very bad. So is seeking sustenance, spending on them and helping them better than seeking knowledge and attending lessons?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān:
Yes. If this is the state of affairs, then seeking sustenance for yourself and your family is better than seeking knowledge. Nevertheless, if you can combine between the two then do so. Work and attend the lesson when it’s on and then return back to work. Combine between them.
