Ref. No. 934 Alif

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

Islam directs that a woman is primarily meant to remain in her home. But she may go out for her dire needs. And if she goes out, she must observe full hijab with covering face, not talk to men without severe need and do not have mixing with men etc. If a Muslim woman works with these conditions, she may be allowed to do job outside her home.

And Allah Knows Best
