If a women is a therapist and she treats male clients in one to one sessions would her income through this be haram? I understand that this is consideredunacceptable but my question is particularly concerned with whether the income itself is haram? Thank you.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The salary of this woman is lawful since it is earned from lawful work, which is, the treatment of patients. She does not earn this salary for being alone with male patients since this matter is accidental and does not represent the main basis upon which she receives the salary.

Allah knows best.
