‘Muslim women can work but with veil’

Muzaffarnagar: Days after a leading
Islamic seminary held as un-Islamic women working in offices
in proximity with men, another seminary has issued a fatwa
that Muslim women can work in offices but with a veil.

Mufti of Darul Iftah of Bareilvi Sharif Mohd Ayyub
Alem Rizvi has issued the fatwa that Muslim women can work in
institutions after wearing the veil but with some conditions.

However, the conditions were not known.
He also said in the fatwa that Muslims can work in
banks under the Islamic law because the interest earned by
banks is profit.

The fatwa was issued at Bareily in Uttar Pradesh to a
query posed before the Iftah by the activist of Raza Muslim
Mission Syed Safe Ali.

Earlier, Darul Uloom Deoband has held as un-Islamic
women working in offices in proximity with men and decreed
that acceptance of her earnings by a family was against the
Sharia.

The Sharia law prohibits proximity of women and men in
a workplace, said a recent fatwa (dictat) issued by a bench of
clerics headed by Chief Mufti Habib-ur-Rehman.

The Darul Uloom had also declared the job of writing
and calculating interest based work in banks and insurance
companies as unlawful.

Both Deoband and Bareilvi belong to Sunni clerics.
