Is it allowed to remove your niqab for a job?

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?

What type of needs can a women go out for?

Assalamualaykum.
In one of your answers to my previous questions you said that there was consensus amongst sahaba and tabieen that women can go out for religious needs and to visit parents. I wanted to ask that were some sahaba and tabieen of the opinion that women can go out to meet their siblings and other relatives such as aunts and uncles, just for fun? Or were they of the opinion that there needs to be a desparate need for them to go out to visit these relatives? Also if a woman goes out frequently to visit her siblings and aunts for fun, with the permission of her husband, will that be allowed according to the opinion of the sahaba and tabieen?

Uncovering before mahrams

I read and also heard a scholar say that a woman cannot uncover her hair and other permissible body parts in front of mahrams or other women that are fasiq, immoral, there is fear of temptation and there is fear that they will describe you to someone else? Is this true and if so, how sure do we need to be that a mahram or woman won’t describe us to others before uncovering before them. Also by fasiq it means someone who openly does major sins but where is the Islamic evidence that woman cannot uncover before such mahrams and women. Furthermore, please tell how a woman can make sure a mahram won’t be tempted or is it enough to assume they won’t be tempted unless proven otherwise.

Tight clothes at home

Assalamu Alaykum.
(Hanafi Fiqh)
I have a few questions about the awrah of a women. At home, if a woman covers her awrah infront of her mahrams yet the clothes aren’t loose and show shape, would that be a sin? I have heard it may be Makruh. Also, is seeing between the navel and knees of another women (clothed yet tight) a sin?
Jazakallah may Allah bless you.

Exfoliating the skin

Assalamualaykum.
I read and saw videos of scholars saying the exfoliation is haram so I stopped doing it. However, this has caused small spots and blemishes to appear on my skin. Would it be permissible to exfoliate to maintain flawless skin?

Explanation of consensus

Assalamualaykum,
I recently asked a question but needed more depth into the tafsir. I was told by a scholar that some sahaba, such as ibn Abbas at, and tabieen were of the opinion that the verse ‘and stay in your houses’ only applies to the wives of the Prophet SAW. I wanted to ask if it’s true that some sahaba or tabieen had this opinion because I have heard there isn’t a consensus in this opinion.

Yellow discharge

I have been experiencing yellow discharge before and after menses. If I make ghusl is it permissible for me to pray my other prayers with the same wudu until I see yellow discharge, or will I have to make wudu for each prayer. For example if I make wudu for zuhr salah and and I do not see yellow discharge then I’d prayer normal, but if I see yellow discharge at asr time then do I have to make seperate wudu for maghrib and isha Salaat? Sometimes we have functions to attend and it is difficult to find wudu facility and make wudu for each salaah, please help me out I have been struggling with this for quite sometime and I need urgent clarification. Jazakallah Khloe

Doubts and waswassas

Assalam o alaikum. I m a 19 year old girl. I m continously having a doubt about paki/napaki. Even after doing ghusl i always have a thoughts like i m not pak and continous discharge make me think that it is not pure even without any sexual thoughts. Are those just doubts? So i take it as shaytani waswassas and continue on my prayer or i have to do ghusl again and again? I am also having doubts that Allah will not accept my prayers,fast etc and i'll considered as gunahgar because i m not pak . also tell me how to distinguish b/w the three discharges or do unmarried girls have them?
Jazakallah

Not knowing the signs of puberty and not praying out of ignorance

Recently I found out that growing pubic hair is a sign of puberty. But before I didn't know that and only started praying 5 times a day once I got my period. Will the prayers I missed before be counted since I didn't know they were obligatory on me? And I don't know when I started growing hair. There was a time in march until May when I prayed but stopped cause it was so hard for me because no one in my family prays and they're not religious so I have to hide it. Do I have to make up the prayers that I missed? And am I sinning if I don't? Because I don't know how many prayers I have to make up. Maybe 2 years worth of prayers... maybe 1 year... maybe 6 months... I literally have no idea whatsoever so I'm waiting on my little sister to start growing hair down there so I can estimate how many prayers I have to make up. But I am more hairy than her so it may not be accurate
