Studying aalim course and secular education at the same time

Question ID: 33207

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته Mufti saheb

I am currently in Grade 12 and I have a desire to do Alim Course. However, I also want to get a university degree so that I can get a job to earn a halaal income.

1. Should I do both or Alim Course only?

2. If I only do Alim Course, in what ways will I be able to earn an income? I dont have business acumen.

3.Will it be permissible to teach Deen/Hifz to earn an income? One Alim said that it is impermissible to use Deen to attain the Dunya (earn an income).

4. If I can do Alim course and get a degree, which will you recommend doing first?
