As a coin has two sides, the concept of a working woman also has some merits and demerits. Now we will talk about some them when a Muslim girl who gets married according to Muslim Matrimony rituals, decides to keep working after marriage.


The advantages of working women generally revolve around personal opportunities, both to develop in one’s career and provide additional financial resources. She does not have to depend on her husband for money. She is able to fulfill all her needs without being accountable to anyone in the family. A married working woman can help her spouse and give their children all the facilities as they don’t have a shortage of money. Also, she gets respect from her husband, family, and the society. She also becomes an expert in balancing her job and home at the same time. If we think from professional perspective, a working girl gets good opportunities to improve her abilities and skills and she also gets a platform for her talent exposure.


Before a Muslim girl decides to keep working after marriage, she must carefully think over all of the options and prepare herself for indefeasible changes. While working, many Muslim women come up with the challenges of working in a non-Muslim environment. Their colleagues discuss the personal aspects of their lives often.

As a working girl, she has to make some sacrifices and cut down on some of her leisure activities. If the working girl is a mother also, then many more problems arise.

According to the Islamic perspective, the most important role for a woman is motherhood. But sometimes a working woman can’t properly concentrate on their children due to their busy schedule. In such situation, children get freedom in excess when they don’t see their mother around to stop them from doing any wrong deeds.

A working woman has to work at home also and if there is no helping hand at home then this makes her frustrated and tired. It may affect husband-wife relationship and other family relations.

So, there are few pros and cons for any Muslim woman if she decides to work after her marriage. But the things get managed according to the decision of her life.
