Q: My wife is a teacher and the mother of six children. (Part No. 14; Page No. 385) She exerts great effort at work, taking care of the children, housework, also many of our relatives visit us.
Is it permissible for us to hire a Muslim maid to help my wife and
make things easy for her. Please advise us, may Allah reward you.
If the situation is as you mentioned, we advise you not to hire a maid. Your wife should stay at home to bring up her children, fulfill her duties towards you, and look after her home. It is not necessary for her to work if she has to do all that you have mentioned in your question. May Allah set right the conditions of all of us. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
