Earnings of a women who goes out to work

Q: Is it halaal for a woman to work outside. E.g. hospitals, Schools with male staff were the Islamic law is not applied? Is her earnings halaal?


A: The earnings will be Halaal, however it is compulsory upon a woman to cover her face and her entire body (with the exception of her hands till the wrists) in the presence of non-Mahrams. If she exposes her face or any part of her body before na-mahrams, or causally interacts with males, then obviously she will be sinful.

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