[7] These people are either unaware of or concealing some realities regarding the legacy of Erudite Salafi Imam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “Indeed, the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets, for the prophets do not leave behind a dinar or a dirham for inheritance, but rather, they leave behind knowledge. So whoever takes hold of it, has acquired a large share (i.e. of inheritance)”. [Sunan At-Tirmidhee 2682]

The anonymous writers at Wikipedia stated that among the controversial views and rulings of Imam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] is the subject matter of women’s rights!

Response: Militant Secularists, modernists, and proponents of immorality continue to argue that segregating the two biological sexes in the arena of work is unprogressive. The Salafi Scholars, in particular Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him], have responded to this viewpoint of theirs, which is solely motivated by a desire to either reject the infallible divine revelation or pursue so-called equality and progress at the expense of sound morality. When asked if a woman is considered to be pursuing her whims and desires if she works without a need for money, the Imaam responded: “Her engagement in work is not tantamount to following desires if it is a noble and safe occupation, and carried out amongst women, without free mixing with men, and she only works amongst women without any injustice and hostility, with the permission of her husband. There are different types of work, and if the work includes disobedience to Allah, then it is obligatory for her to abandon it. If it includes free mixing between men and women and showing her beauty, then this is also evil. But if it is work that is allowed or legislated by Islamic law amongst her Muslim sisters, such as teaching girls, or working as a nurse, or working as a doctor for women, then there is no harm in this and all praise is due to Allah. Even if she is not in need of money, it is still allowed because she may want more money, or need it to give away in charity and so on.
