Islam’s basic view of women and men postulates a complementarity of functions: like everything else in the universe, humanity has been created in a pair– neither can be complete without the other.
Traditional interpretations of Islam require a woman to have her husband’s permission to leave the house and take up employment, though scholars have said that women do not require a husband’s permission to leave the house and work.
In today’s society, the most crucial debate also is whether a woman can work after marriage or not? And if she works, who’ll raise the kids and look after the house? The gender roles are fixed and biased in many aspects and are mostly non-negotiable.
Coming to understand this further and reading numerable blogs gives us an understanding that women in Islam are allowed to work keeping in mind her employment doesn’t cause her to neglect her duties as a wife and mother and it doesn’t cause her to violate the Islamic law and that she maintains her modesty while she performs any work outside her home.
