Working at day care

Fatwaa ID: 2079

Is it permissible for a woman to work at an American daycare where there’s some music going on and sometimes male parent comes to pick up the child

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A woman may work at such a doctor and use it as a means of showing the beauty of Islam to others. Nurture values and uprightness in the children. In terms of the music, she should try put on earphones when it is on to cover up the music playing. As for her interactions with the male parents, she should remain professional and avoid unnecessary interactions. We understand that these two issues are not things that are there all the time.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
