If You’re Not Qualified…

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

If you’re not qualified for the position of work you hold, you [should] either leave it–so that you don’t combine two sins, not being qualified and keeping someone else more qualified for it than you from taking it–or you [should] set yourself right by improving and becoming qualified so that you can fulfill the trust as completely as it should be.

And what’s more appropriate and required is becoming qualified before getting a position.
