Question

I am a specialist doctor and I work mornings at a government university hospital. I have some free time during my work. During this time can I make use of the computers in the hospital to listen to lectures and do some research, or is that regarded as using it for personal reasons?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

If that is during your free time, and will not cause you any pressure that will affect your work, and does not cost the hospital money, such as using their paper and the like, then there is nothing wrong with it. 

And Allaah knows best.
