I have a question (which is a dilemma) which I hope Inshallah someone can advise on.
Nearly 3 years ago I was Mashallah running my own business, which started doing really well. Then, the recession thing started bubbling up and unfortunately I had no option but to close my business and look for a job :'(
I felt very lucky (by the grace of Allah) to find a job that fitted in with our beliefs-I was working with women and children helping them get the most out of services, working with them on courses, informing them of benefit entitlements etc. Mashallah I'd say the job was Shariah friendly, and is with the government.
About 3 months ago our bosses made the shocking announcement that as they felt my job hadn't reached it's full potential they wanted to expand the role by getting me to work with men
even though to this date that never happend but the bosses say that it's about improving government figures for when the new government takes over so funding doesn't get completly axed.
I've checked in my job description and with the union and they can do this-it's not illegal etc etc.
I am trying to be a good Muslimah, and I really do not wish to work in an environment or with men as of course it would not be right.
I wish to start up my business again so that I can leave the job before the work starts with men. I know the change is coming and I've been looking for jobs but unfortunately I cannot find something that fits in with working with women and children only. I am educated, and have looked at jobs far away and would be willing to commute an hour either way for work but have not found anything yet.
To cut the story short there, can anyone suggest Surahs/Duas/Suppliments I can read for Rizq in my business?
Sorry to waffle on, I've been quite worried about the situation and thought someone might be able to educate me by informing me of what to read for this dilemma. I know nothing is ever built in a day that is worth having however I wish to start the business the best way possible.
I am Mashallah married, however due to the illness of a senior in our family I am unable to leave work completely.
