Studying sciences involving falsehood

Q 6: Is it permissible to study philosophy, logic, and theories that mock Allah's Ayahs (Qur'anic verses)? Is it permissible to attend places that offer these studies or is it included in this Ayah: And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur’ân) that when you hear the Verses of Allâh being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. (Part No. 2; Page No. 61


A: If a person is knowledgeable enough and confident in themselves to the extent that they are not afraid that reading these subjects or sitting with their adherents will cause a Fitnah (trial) to their religion, and that their intention in studying these subjects is to refute the falsehoods included in them, they are permitted to study them. Otherwise, it is Haram (prohibited) for them to study them or to mix with those who teach them, to avoid the falsehoods, their adherents, and the Fitnah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
