If a wife is a doctor who works outside, thus cannot take care of her husband and child properly. Will it be sin? When the situation is that the profession of the wife is hampering her duty towards her family, can the husband stop his wife from doing outside job?
There could be several points concerning what you inquired:
Is it a sin for a job holder wife not taking proper care of husband and child
- Based on Islamic evidences, (at least based on Shia’s viewpoint), it is permissible for women (wives) to work out of the house (by observing some items…, aside from some limitations in doing that…)
- The husband cannot force or make the wife to do the house’s works (although it is better if the wife do the works herself without forcing…). In the meantime, it shows how much Islam pay attention to women rights…
According to Imam Khomeini (Ayatollah Khomeini) as a Shiite Marja’-al-Taqlid as the response to the following question as it has been asked:
If the husband didn’t deem it (working of wife out of the home) advisable, and being employed of wife causes to break up the married life, “can the husband prevent her wife to work or not?”
Imam Khomeini (Ayatollah Khomeini) replied:
Being employed for the wife is no impermissible, but it is related to the right (permission) of the husband if she wants to get out of the house.
