Assalamualaikum,
For years, I have been taught that, according to Islam, it is better for Muslim girls to stay at home. Girls should not go outside without the permission of their parents or husband. Getting jobs and working with unrelated males is also strictly prohibited.

Is it true that to be a faithful Muslim woman, I cannot hold a job or build up an identity of my own?

  • Just by my humble opinion, all I can say is that you can definitely hold a job as a female while being a faithful Muslim. All you have to do is this...."BE MODEST". Honestly, I am quite curious as to where you have learnt that better Muslims girls have to stay at home or girls can't go outside. I personally want your opinion on the matter with proper islamic references to back your statements. – EPIC Tube HD May 21 at 9:33
