As freshman commence their journeys, sophomores return for another year, juniors pray they can make it to senior year and seniors struggle with senioritis, it’s time for all of us to take a step back and learn so that gaining education doesn’t cost us the rest of our lives.
We must ask ourselves a few questions:
- How do I avoid debt in general?
- As a Muslim, how do you avoid incurring student loan debts?
- Isn’t it too late? Shouldn’t I have been saving for the past 20 years?
These are all legitimate questions that we should genuinely be asking ourselves. For decades, Muslim students have been graduating and earning degrees from institutions of higher education and during this time they have witnessed the cost of education increase exponentially. Just speak to your parents. When they hear how much school is going to cost this upcoming year, they are baffled.
