Women working

Q: If a family is facing some financial problems can a girl go for a job in a firm? Is there any problem if a girl goes for a job in Islam?


A: It is best for women and more safeguarding for their Deen and chastity that they remain within the confines of their home. Without a valid Shar’ee need they should not leave their home. The corporate environment where women are seen rubbing shoulders with men is an anti Islamic environment. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
