Importance of choosing the right career:

If you don’t have a passion for work and are only doing it for money, you won’t be able to focus on the work. You will not give it your 100%, and eventually, it will lead to depression and stress.

However, if you choose your passion and work in that field, then even if you don’t earn much, you will be happy because you will be doing what you love.

One wrong choice can ruin your whole life. That is why the intermediate level is considered a very decisive one.


But you don’t need to worry, because the mission of the Mukabbir schools is to raise leaders who are experts in their field.

Students must also work hard in whatever field they choose. They must have a motive to serve. They must remember that there is no easy way out or a shortcut to success.

Hard work is the key to success. No matter how small the profession, it will require dedication and hard work to make it big. That is why we must keep working hard and never lose hope.
