(Fatwa: 721/721=J)


In normal conditions, a woman should not do a job. But, if there is no male earning member or the husband?s earnings do not suffice then she can go for a work provided she protects her chastity and observes hijab. If the work requires her to go out of home she can go out with the permission of her husband or guardian.
