Muslim women are not like non-believing women and should act as Islamic models for all who may see. women are not restricted from moving about the community, working or visiting if they are properly covered and if necessary, escorted, but a women’s base should be her home. this general instruction applies until the last day and Islam can not be manipulated suit individual whims or desires: it is here for us to sumbit to.
in other to live an Islamic life, we have to be willing to completely submit to the injunctions ordained by Allah. Allah knows what is best for us, and He would not command us to other than good. He has given women authority over their husband’s households and fitted their nature to the task. He has also instructed women not to follow un-Islamic life-style and customs. He said to the wives of the Prophet (Pbuh):
Quran surah Al-Ahzab : 32-33
O wives of the Prophet, you are not like anyone among women. If you fear Allah , then do not be soft in speech [to men], lest he in whose heart is disease should covet, but speak with appropriate speech. (32)
And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.(33)
