"Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed All?h answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Qur'?n) and Al-Hikmah (full knowledge of the Isl?mic laws and jurisprudence or wisdom or Prophethood, etc.), and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." (Al-Baqarah 2:129) Similarly (to complete My Blessings on you) We have sent among you a Messenger (Muhammad ) of your own, reciting to you Our Verses (the Qur'?n) and sanctifying you, and teaching you the Book (the Qur'?n) and the Hikmah (i.e. Sunnah, Isl?mic laws and Fiqh - jurisprudence), and teaching you that which you used not to know. (Al-Baqarah 2:151) I'd be careful with such statements as yours since such speech takes one out of Islam.

As salaamu alaikum, I think this is going into a lot of "ifs" instead of what is. There are too many factors involved as to whether or not a sister should stop working or studying to get married. A fact is that it is better for a sister to marry. A fact is that it is better for women to be in the home. A fact is that there are areas in certain fields that a sister would be best to fill. We also have to look at what a person is willing to sacrifice. Some sisters I've heard will&has given up all her time as a doctor and other professions to be married. Other have given it up because they've wanted not to work after marriage. Still other sisters won't give up anything they've worked for for marriage. I think it really depends on the person and what is needed.

I don't think it should matter if the husband is earning more or less. lets say..this person is studying hard, so she can help humanity in terms of healthy related illnesses, does she has to stop working after she gets married and forget her tireless, sleepless long hours spent studying? OR she just sits and waits man to marry her?

salam alikum, i think as wife of Mohammed (S.A.V)worked outside of home so its ok for woman to work, but if man make enough money (to pay bills, to pay rent or mortgage, for shopping) why she should waste her time on it when she really can take proper care of her kids..no day care, neither coming home baby sitter will or can take care of baby as mom would do. & i know a lot of stay at home moms in US, who used to work before..people think that in US all women work, its not so at all..JazakAllah Kheyir

As salaamu alaikum, Again from what I've read from the ulemaa is that women can work in fields that require their presence to work with other women. Any job that they mix with men is not allowed. Yes the wife of an Nabi SAWS worked, but was that before or after he SAWS said it is best? A sister can even work at a job that requires her to remove her hijaab until she can find work to support herself and wear hijaab. This falls under the lesser of the 2 evils. As far as all women working here in the states...where'd you come up with that one? Most brothers I know wives do not work, and if they do it is not in a building of some sort. Anyway just what type of life style are you referring that these sisters may miss out on? Oh, and my wife has a degree masha Allah. The what if is from shaytaan, so why continue to use it? There are many things that can happen, and in all of them we have Allah to turn to for everything. Your husband doesn't sustain you and your children, nor do/would you. Allah is "The" Sustainer of all. So if your looking at sisters working is the only way for whatever...Allah is able to do all things. So if all mankind were against you, they could do you no harm if Allah willed against it. And if all mankind were with you, they couldn't stop harm from coming to you if Allah willed it. So I guess the question is just how do you believe in Allah? Brother Insha Allah your question has been answered. But really if you want the true answer you'll have to ask ahul 'ilm like the grand mufti of Saudi and those in his circles of alims.

even the prophets wif kadijah worked. and the prophet did not require her to stop. so why should women be required not to work these days when the cost of living sometimes requires it?

May be it s cause they want to be able to have stuff they want , with out asking for stuff to much , plus in this country if a woman does not work out side the home ,others look at her funny , like what is wrong with her . Also women get to the point of wanting what other women have that they do't and do what other women do . U live in America - Come on every woman works here - since when do they not as well as other countrys that they do . Iraq is very back wards on that . Also think of your kids - who would provide for them if some thing were to happend to u today or tomorrow?( like you were klled in accident or died of some illness?) Just a thought .

Brother, ASAK, My need to ask this question is some thing different, Actually we live in a world where the stage is set in the name of modernization, and Muslim women have come out seeing the ones from other religions,my consent here is should a Muslim women work favoring modernization or not,here i had mentioned very clearly that the husband is earning well.the question arises when a Muslim women is well educated and want to utilize her education.I need to know whether Islam allows such deeds or not, Hope you would take my question in a appropriate way. Allah Hafiz.

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, dear brother most people now dont even bother asking this question. Allah created Adam (a.s.) and after he created Hawa(a.s.) Allah said to Hawa I have created you to be of service to Adam.People nowadays left behind islamic values and are running after ego's desires.Men should work for the provisions.The main task of women is to teach children islam.But now that women also work nobody performs that task thus the children become like infidels. My living and my diying is for Allah I dont live in the name of Modernisation Allah granted me life not George Bush not Tony Blair to Allah I must answer for how I lived according to his laws or according to my desires. The Judgement lies with Allah. In your case the answer is clear if you earn enough to support your wife then her working is for luxury and nothing else.muslims are not put on earth to live in luxury while other poor muslims die of starvation as our prophet (saws)My ummah is one body if one part feels pain the other parts feel the same pain. a wife must get the consent of her husband to work. If the husband refuses, she cannot work. Still she is not allowed to mix with men also hijabing the body is a must(but I think we already know that).Women do have the right of earning and possesing money.Allah knows best

as salaamu alaikum I've never read were women are not allowed to work outside of the home if there is a need. If there is not a need then why would a muslim wome won't to do such a thing? I say this because an nabi SAWS commanded the women to stay in their homes, but allowed them to come out to the masjid. I have very little understanding in the affairs of deen, but from what I do understand is that women should fear Allah to the best of their abilities. They are going to be the ones with the most numbers in the hellfire, so what must be done is by them is to think about the things that they want and compare it to the things that needed. If the husband can proved, why push issues that are not needed. Remember to stay away from the "what if" stuff since that is from shayaatin.
