Mangaluru: Meet Shabana - First Muslim woman CA from Karnataka coast


Sunil Haleangady
Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 12: The popular notion in vogue is that passing of IAS and IPS examinations is easier as compared to successfully completing chartered accountancy (CA) course. This notion is not totally unfounded. Because, considering the number of aspirants trying to clear the CA examination, the percentage of successful candidates is marginal.

Moreover, the fact that education among Muslim girls has still a long way to go makes this young woman's feat a truly remarkable one.

Shabana, a Muslim girl who hails from a poor family based in rural area, has won the admiration of a large number of people by clearing CA exams with sheer hardwork and dedication. Daughter of M A Hussainabba and Bi Fathima residing in the government hospital compound, Karnad, Mulky, Shabana gets full credit for being the first ever Muslim woman candidate from the coastal region to have registered this landmark achievement. In the entire state, only two or three Muslim women chartered accountants can be found.

Shabana is the third among five children of Hussainabba with two elder sisters, a younger sister, and a brother. Hussainabba,, who worked as supervisor in a local plywood factory, did not allow financial constraints to weaken the prospects of his children, in spite of being the sole earning member. While Shabana has successfully completed her dream of becoming a CA, her brother, Rashiq, has completed MBA and bagged a job in Bengaluru.

Shabana got her primary education in UBMC school in Karnad, completed PU education in Karnad government PU college, and B Com degree course in Pompei College, Aikala, Kinnigoli. In the CA examination held in November 2014, only 8.23 percent of 181 students who appeared for the examination in the city could clear it. It is learnt that the national average pass percentage pertaining to this examination is eight.

Institute of Chartered Accountants of India having central office at Chennai conducts these examinations. It has a branch office at Padil in the city, and St Aloysius College here happens to be the examination centre for the CA examination.

When Shabana was questioned about how she got interested in CA, she said mathematics happened to be a favourite subject for her since younger days. "When undergoing degree course, I got interested in becoming a CA, and my teachers encouraged me. After the degree, I appeared for the Common Proficiency Test and after passing it, joined for three-year articleship course under Gopalakrishna Aithal, CA based in Mangaluru. After he died last year, I continued the course in his office, and then joined another CA from the city, Keshava Ballakuraya. After the result was announced on January 19, at the advice of Ballakuraya, I have continued to work under him as an associate CA," she explained.

On the method of preparing for the examination, she explained that she used to start to seriously study for the examination about two months in advance, by beginning studies at around 5 am. After completing first round of study, mostly practical, till 7.30 am, she said she consumed breakfast and took up second round of study. "I used to study theory from 8 am to 10.30 am. Then I took ten minutes rest, and resumed the same subject and continued till 1 or 1.30 pm. Then I took up another subject between 2 pm and 4.30 pm, mostly practical. I then continued study from 5 pm to 10.30 pm. I never studied more than four subjects per day, and did not opt to lose sleep for studying like some others do, as I felt studying in the morning was more effective," she added. She clarified that she found it difficult to study during working days as it would be late by the time she reached home. She said she used to take leave as the examination approached, and study during this period.

About the support she got at her workplace, she was in profuse praise for her current boss, who she said, used to get case studies done through her by providing her necessary books to study. She said that this had helped her immensely in the CA examination. On her future plans, she explained that she wants to work for a few months at the present office, where she will get rich experience in handling service tax issues. Her next plan is to work for a year in an auditing firm in Bengaluru, where she will get to study issues concerning foreign clients, as companies in Mangaluru do not get them. After that she wants to set up audit firm either on her own or in partnership with others in the city.

On being congratulated for emerging as an inspiration for Muslim girls and seeking for her message to her Muslim sisters, she said they should hone their talents and should come out and achieve something rather than staying at home. She feels that they should make use of opportunities lying before them.

Her advice to parents is that they should never adopt the policy of educating only the sons and encouraging only them to work. They should equally identify talents of their daughters and encourage them to study and work. Even the girls should be allowed to explore opportunity and carve out a future for themselves, she opines.

Asked about the support she got from her family, she said that her father, who worked in a factory in the local industrial area, supported his children to study what they wanted, although the family was poor. She also said she is grateful to her maternal uncles, who have always supported her plans, and provided all needed support for education. She said they have also promised to assist her to set up her own office.

    I remember a Mangalorean Catholic girl from my housing society, who got a marriage proposal from a CA, Catholic boy that she rejected. When her elder brother, an IT professional who works outside India and whose wife is a CA, told her "You may get proposal from 100 engineers like me, but, you will never get a proposal from another CA, hence, just marry him." and she married that boy.

    without any prejudice, What is the big deal in CA? I agree, Exam is hard, Tough to crack, only selected few does pass out. I mean, At the end of the day what we achieve? A degree like any other degree. Why some degrees are inferior/superior than others?

    The Muslims are educationally getting better. The one reason I think is due to their close interaction with Brahmins who are educationally forward and become a inspirational source for Muslims.This is true in my case and many I know around.There could be other reasons as well.

    Congratulations Shabana and Masha Allah Mabrook. May Allah bless you more success In Shaa Allah.
    Indeed a great honor not only for Shabana but also to all Muslim community especially to all Muslim women. At this time when people all around talk about the injustice and ill-treatment to Muslim women (which is NOT correct, as in Islam there is equal right to all men & women), this achievement has come as a blessing in disguise to show that there is nothing as such that in Islam girls are not allowed to go out for studying!
    Education is one of the most important phase of life in Islam and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had encouraged education. Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan – the founder of UAE had his vision of Educated Youth and had said that “A country's greatest investment lies in building generations of educated and knowledgeable youth” and “Our current leaders of wisdom and vision have kept education as our most essential commitment”. We can see almost all women in the Gulf Region get their higher education not only from within their own countries but also go to USA, UK, and India for higher education. We have seen Mulsim ladies pilot flying aircraft.

    Indeed a great news and I congratulate Shabana and not only the Muslim women but all women of the World.

    Looking at the pictures your parents look very humble people and today they are the proudest.

    Hearty congratulations sister Shabana. What an inspirational story this is. You not only made muslim community proud but also Mangalore and women fraternity proud. There are many such Muslim ladies in and around mangalore who want to do well, who have potential but are financially constraint. Shabana has broken all these barriers. She has proved that where there is a will there is a way. For young aspirants who want to pursue their education and lack funds, there are many such organizations in mangalore which will assist them. To name a few – Hidayah Foundation, Hope Foundation, CESA.

    Shabanas success could not be possible without the support of Late Mr. Gopalakrishna Aithal, and Mr. Keshava Ballakuraya. Hats off to you Sirs.

    It was an absolute joy to read about your Shabana. A pride to the womanhood especially because you come from a very bonded background. Gratitude to your parents and family members who encouraged you through your achievement.

    Now, I have a request - please continue working, even after marriage. Hope elders in your family will ensure such an environment for you. Else, all your struggles, sacrifices will go down the drain.

    I feel very disheartened when our girls even after earning Masters, Engineering Degrees stay at home due to restrictions from in-laws. I sincerely hope traditions changes as per present financial needs.
