    Re: Work opportunities for Muslim women

    In our country we also face a severe discrimination, especially in non-muslim regions...however I managed to work in an embassy, but it was not the best position. Besides, if a person knows foreign languages, he/she can also earn the living by translations. I'm doing it know, not much money, but if I could spare more time to this work I would be able to earn more. Another friend of mine is designing clothing for muslims and sewing them too (although now I'm her most important client:))

    Theres many jobs and careers:

    1. Designer (clothes, jilbaabs, jewlerry etc)
    2. Health and beauty (anything from private to full bridal)
    3. Open your own take away
    4. Fitness instructor (You'll be surprised at the number of people looking for a female trainer, muslims and non muslims)


    The only limit is your mind dude, use your imagination and I ask Allah to help you

    Salaam sis,

    its about getting yourself out there and going to actively look.. in my experience having really good qualification helps alot
    so working behind a desk i.e. receptionist answering phone calls filing etc, is suitable for me as i stil can be covered but work to my full potential

    go to like jobcentre theyl help to find a suitable job InshAllah

    Freelance writing is really an excellent option for us niqabis. I'm a online freelance writer and I couldn't be happier. I work when I want to and I get paid reasonably well. There are loads of opportunities online like Odesk and eLancer, you could try them.

    Or maybe you can consider home tutoring??

    Re: Work opportunities for Muslim women

    salaam alikoum, interesting thread since I am in the process of trying to find a job since I recently moved back home and now I have student loans to pay (don't get me started about our educational system here!) Now that I am adult, I can't rely on my parents, and as much as I want to be a "homemaker" (I think that's the politically correct term they're using now), I have to be my sole provider.

    However, I can share my experience from when I lived in France, where wearing the hijab to work (in the public sector) is not allowed and now the burqua is banned in public. Luckily I had some great connections and I landed a job teaching in a private Muslim school, which does not have to abide by those rules, thus I not only was able to do my prayers on time, but wear my hijab and work in a wonderful Islam rich environment.

    Many of my Muslima friends worked, and since they refuse to remove their hijab, with reason, may Allah reward them inshAllah, they had to be very creative about jobs- many had home daycares, or babysat, those that spoke Arabic gave lessons to other Muslim women/children, some starting their own online businesses of selling clothes/books/Islamic items, some worked in family owned shops (bakery, butcher), some made oriental pastries and sold them. Really it is possible in that situation, but you have to be creative.

    :up:

    i think its fair to say they cant not give u an interview because of ur hijaab, but if they chose someone else over u and the reason is ur hijaab they aint got proof on that so it cant be dealt with
