Employment

Employment is a relationship between two parties, usually based on a contract where work is paid for, where one party, which may be a corporation, for profit, not-for-profit organization, co-operative or other entity is the employer and the other is the employee. Employees work in return for payment, which may be in the form of an hourly wage, by piecework or an annual salary, depending on the type of work an employee does or which sector they are working in. Employees in some fields or sectors may receive gratuities, bonus payment or stock options.

In fiqh, the religious director or an Islamic centre, or the Imām of the mosque is referred to as Imām al-Rātib, and his role is important in managing the religious affairs of the mosque. He can receive a regular income for his various services, like lectures, counseling, religious management, etc. 

It is problematic for the religious scholar to receive any financial benefit from doing something wajib or teaching something wajib, and even for jamā'ah prayer itself. It is not befitting for talib al-'ilm to be paid for leading prayers in itself, but he can receive salary for the preliminaries for these things, like travelling expenses, rent, and so on. 

Indeed, the more financially stable the religious scholar is the more effective he will be in serving his community. 

And Allah knows best.

Hijab is an obligatory practice on every Muslim female. Non Hijabi female working or mixing with men causes them looking at her hair or arms or legs which is itself not permissible for the men. We should cause any sin to any one. Discrimination is bad against people with equal qualities, but encouraging non Hijab is completely wrong and means disrespecting the orders of Allah (SWT).

Muslim must obey the orders of Allah in every matter and every field of life.

Wassalam.

Yes it is allowed as far as the picture does not have anything against the rules of Islam. It should not be a picture of a female with out Hijab or any person or item or image which is not permissible in Islam.

Being poor is not an excuse not to pray, in fact praying increases wealth, material and spiritual.

First, begin by performing your prayers, once that has been done. Other things, like seeing the ahlulbayt in dreams might be possible.

Yes, you would be permitted to work there, and the income is halal, and it does not concern you what they use it for, and how. Netflix is also not haram. It all depends on how it is used, and what is watched, by the individual.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Earning a halal income is an act of worship and is pleasing to Allah swt. Yes, it is true that some jobs may also fit into different catergories too. For example a job which involves charity related work such as helping the needy people or orphans could fall under the category of mustahab jobs. You may then get jobs which fall under the category of makruh such as selling Kafans or working in a slaughterhouse. Such jobs although not haram, become makruh as a kafan seller may wish more people to die for sales to go up, and the one who slaughters animals for meat, may become used to such an action and cold hearted. 
 

What one should be careful of is falling into a job which is in the haram category making ones income unlawful. 
 

May Allah grant you success

Thank you for your question. Not having a fully worked out life plan worked out is not the same as lacking confidence in God that you will succeed. If your future spouse is happy with your stage in working things out then there is no problem in getting married.

May you always be successful
