I always wanted to be a stay at home mum and raise my kids. I had three children over seven years and they all passed away soon after birth. Since we're not planning to have more children at the moment and we live alone in a western country I was thinking about having a career to be more productive and to distract myself and keep myself busy. We are not in any financial difficulty and my husband earns enough for the both of us. I cover my face (niqab) but would have to remove it for job purposes. Would this be permissible?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

You should keep the Niqab and not uncover your face. Search for jobs that will allow you to have the Niqab on whilst working.

And Allah knows best
