Should she take a job or stay home?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
My female friend has two kids. She has maid and her kids are quite comfortable with her. She did Istikhara if she should do job or not. “She sees herself in the place where she spent her entire childhood. She sees herself walking up the mountain surrounding her house with her close school friend (her friend is currently undergoing cancer treatment). The mountains are lush green (which in reality were not green). She suddenly remembers her friend illness and inquires about it. In second scene she sees herself in a ground in front of the house she had lived. She sees a dirty black hairy dog running towards her, she runs to her house and tries hard to get the dog off her but in vain, during this when she looks at the dog’s face, its similar to that of her maid’s. She closes the house door but dog gets in. After much trying she manages to get rid of the dog “.


(Fatwa: 562/D=93/File-D=1433)

If she did istikhara for her employment then the dream clearly indicates that employment is not useful for her, rather it shall be harmful for her externally.
