Is A Woman Entitled To Work In Islam? by Realismailakabir(m): 9:13pm On Oct 08
Praise be to Allah the Lord of the world.

According to Islamic law, it is permissible for a Muslim woman to go out for work provided the following conditions are observed:

- The job is deemed permissible and does not include anything that contradicts Islamic legal rulings.
- A woman’s person, chastity, and religion are safe.
- The job suits her physical and psychological nature.

A woman's work should not contradict righteousness or come in conflict with her guardian's responsibility to her.
Evidence from the Sunnah
Jabir Ibn 'Abdullah (may God be pleased with them) narrated that his maternal aunt was divorced. During her post-divorce waiting period, she went out to collect the fruit from her palm trees. A man saw her and rebuked her so she went to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and reported the matter to him. He told her: "You may certainly go out to collect [the dates] from your palm trees, for perhaps you may give out charity or do an act of kindness" (recorded by Muslim in his Sahih).

Islamic law and working women
It is established in Islamic law that it is impermissible for a wife to go out for work except with her husband's permission; she becomes blameworthy if she does so without her husband's explicit or implicit permission.

Mutual rights
A husband is obliged to provide for his wife while she is to remain in the marital house in fulfillment of his rights over her. God Almighty says, “Men are in charge of women by [right of] what God has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth” (Quran 4: 34).

There is no contradiction between a wife's right to work and her husband's right to prevent her. No one can object to a sensible and adult woman's legal right to engage in work that is lawful or to her right to financial independence though this does not contradict her husband's right to prevent her from working. This comes in analogy to the permissibility for a husband to prevent his wife from performing voluntary prayers and fasts although they are both legally permissible.
A husband's consent may be either explicit or implicit. His explicit permission involves informing her of his consent while his implicit permission involves showing no objection to her work or accepting to marry her while knowing that she is a working person.

And God Almighty knows best.

Islam considered women as a property, their major work is in the kitchen and the other room.

Very nonsense religion with archaic and anachronistic practices.

Why would Muslim societies choose to be so backwards and refuse to evolve??
Why would they believe that a female is fundamentally inferior to a male and see to suppress that female.

I was really shocked to learn that it is bad for a woman to shake Hands with any male who is not her husband, that is just plain rubbish.
This religion needs to undergo total reformation and refurbishment.

Bros women are inferior to men even in Christianity, Judaism and a lot of religions, the only culture I've ever seen were women are equal to men is ancient Egypt.

If Khadija Muhammad's first wife did not work and was not wealthy, how would she have married Muhammad? Note: Khadija married Muhammad, and not the other way round.

And when Khadijah died, muhammad inherited her wealth and properties and he suddenly said that Allah had commanded him to marry as much wives as possible.

When khadijah the breadwinner of the family was alive, Muhammad could not make that claim that he received a command that he could marry numerous wives.


So the answer is, Muslim women should work like khadijah so that they can marry men like Khadija married muhammad.

I am not a Muslim

But your Prophet's wife was a rich merchant trader. Khadijah had a caravan trading along various routes. If she could work and be a successful business woman, then tell that malam that he is mad if he says your daughters shouldn't work

The most important question a moslem should ask is

Why are man taught to beat up their wives like animals



Qur'an (38:44) -
"And take in your hand a green branch
AND BEAT HER WITH IT,


Qur'an (4:34) -
"Men are the maintainers of women because
Allah has made some of them to
....... BEAT THEM;

Compare it with Christianity

Jesus commands us all to Love our wives!

Ephesians 5:25 (KJV)
Husbands, LOVE YOUR WIVES, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Also
Colossians 3:19
Husbands, LOVE YOUR WIVES,
and
BE NOT BITTER AGAINST THEM.
