If husband is sufficient to bare expenses for daily needs and decent life can wife join to work?
To convince my friend please give reference from Quran and Hadith with deatils explantions.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Allah Ta’ala says:
وقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ
Translation: Remain in your homes and do not make a display of yourselves as was the practice of (women during) the former period of ignorance. (Al-Ahzaab: 33)
It is clear from the above quoted verse that women should confine themselves in their homes. Shariah does grant leniency for women to exit their homes due to personal need and necessity while adhering to the laws of hijab.
In the enquired case, the husband fulfils the needs of the wife and family. Accordingly, there is no leniency for the wife to leave the home to earn an income.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
