According to Islamic teachings, is it permissible for Muslim women to pursue a career as astronauts and participate in space exploration missions while observing hijab like Nora AlMatrooshi? Are there any religious limitations that should be taken into account regarding the role of women in space travel, and what guidance does Islam provide on this matter? The same kind of security measures is taken there whether she is a male or female.
In a hadith our prophet Pbuh said:
If you live long enough, you will see a young woman traveling from Al-Hirah to circumambulate the Kaaba, fearing no one but Allah
Also, Egypt's Dar Al-Iftaa says:
The opinion appropriate for fatwa at present is that it is permissible and there is no objection to a woman traveling alone by the various safe routes and means of travel via their venues such as airports, harbors, and the like. This applies whether she is traveling for something obligatory, recommended, or permissible.
So, can a Muslim woman pursue a career as an astronaut and go to space? Will this be halal?
