Question :
What are the permissible types of work for a Muslim woman to work in without being in contradiction with the teachings of her religion?

Answer :
The places of work for women are those places that are specific for women. For example, she may work in woman's education, either in administration or otherwise. She can also work in her house by being a tailor for women and so forth. It is not allowed for her to work in areas which are exclusive for men because in that case she must mix with men and this is a great source of trial and temptation that one must beware of. One must realize that the Prophet (S.A.W) said,
I have not left behind me any temptation more harmful for men than women.
"I have not left behind me any temptation more harmful for men than women."
Recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.
Verily, the [first] trial that afflicted the Tribes of Israel was with respect to women.
"Verily, the [first] trial that afflicted the Tribes of Israel was with respect to women."
Recorded by Muslim. The Arabic text of this work presents these two hadith as one hadith. In reality, they are two hadith.
A man must keep his family and wife from falling into such temptations and their causes under all circumstances.
Shaikh ibn Uthaimin
