Are women allowed to go out of the house for fun?


Assalamualaykum. I wanted to ask if women are only allowed of the house in case of genuine need or an essential reason? So as I Muslim women can I not go to the restaurant with my female friends just for fun? Will I be sinful in doing so?


Walikum salam

Thank you for your question.

Yes, Islam permits both men and women to go out for both genuine and amusement reasons, unless and until he/she is not indulged into a haram activity or there is a fear of falling into haram activitiy.
