My name is Monsura and I really need some advice. I need advice from Muslim sisters who are currently active or retired from the Armed Services. I am currently taking classes to become an officer in the Army (ROTC) but I am having a huge dilemma because first I can't wear hijab although I do wear a headscarf and secondly I may have to kill another Muslim as a officer even though I want to join the medical branch of the Army and become a doctor. Initially I thought going into the military that I would not have to kill unless I was in the infantry division of the Army. I did not know that I would have to still kill another human being, this scares me a lot because I want to save lives not take them. Killing another Muslim is a big SIN in Islam and I do not want to be held accountable for that SIN on the day of judgment. I was thinking that I could become a Muslim chaplain in the military but it is really hard to become a chaplain when you are a female because you can not lead prayers. I read a story online about Lieutenant Colonel Shareda Hosein, this lady wants to be a Muslim chaplain and the military would not allow her because she is a woman. She is struggling to be a chaplain, from what I read she seems like she would be a great candidate but it is just so hard. I feel very sad and disappointed please write in sisters and may Allah bless you abundantly.
