Women leaving the home to work

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to know if my husband gives me permission to work outside is it ok? I wear complete hijab except for face. Also I have to speak to my manager sometimes regarding work who is a male. My office has many female co workers and I am very professional with everyone. I don’t joke or smile at men. Is it fine for me to work is such conditions. Also I want to ask the money I earn, my husband wants to manage it. He fullfils all my needs but also gives my money to people in need. If I am not willing is he allowed to do so?


A: When Allah Ta`ala has seen to your needs through your husband, what is the need to leave the home.

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