IS THE TRADE OF KHADIJAH رضي الله عنها, A PROOF FOR WOMEN TO WORK NOWADAYS?



Question:
Is there an authentic Hadith which states that the Prophet ﷺ used to work for Khadijah رضي الله عنها? If so, does this mean that the woman can be allowed to work as Khadijah رضي الله عنها has a business, which is like working?
Answer:
Bismillaah, alhamdulillahi wassalatu wassalaamu alaa rasoolillahi wa ala’ aalihi wasallam, amma ba’ad
It is a true fact that before the Prophet ﷺ married Khadijah رضي الله عنها , he used to work for her and take responsibility of some of her trade caravans.
However, this is not a proof that can be used by those who want to allow women to work in jobs by herself as seen nowadays, but it is rather against them because Khadijah herself did not work, but she employed other men to do it on her behalf.
Furthermore, it should be understood that if a woman is able to work within the rules of the Shari’ah [such as without free mixing or any other Fitan (trials) and with the permission of her Wali (guardian) or husband] and she is able to uphold her responsibilities to her husband and family, then there is no Daleel (evidence) to say that work is illegal for her.
