Can a Woman Work as air-hostess?

Nowadays, the willingness of women to work as an air-hostess is increasing.  Thus, it is necessary to understand its rules also:


While working as an air-hostess, a woman has to serve food and drinks to the passengers.  For the following reasons, working as an airhostess is not permissible for Muslim women:


1.  Mostly, for airhostesses, the clothes are indecent.


2.  Talking/interacting/mixing with men is unavoidable.


3.  The whole job is itself in a journey, although the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has prohibited from traveling with a non-Mahram, as given in the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:


Translation of Hadith:  It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Umar (May Allah be well pleased with them) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  No woman should travel for a distance of more than 3 days without a Mahram.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 1024)


If it is possible to do this job following the rules of the Hijab as decreed by the Shariah, avoiding mixing with men and along with a Mahram, then there is an allowance for it provided the women only serve women and don’t mix with men.  Otherwise, this job itself is a mixture of many sins.


What does the Shariah say about the lady who for the sake of relaxing wants to go to a park or such place along with her husband and/or the Mahram relatives.  What does the Shariah say about the lady who wants to eat in a hotel along with her husband and/or Mahram relatives?  Does the Shariah permit it?


The Hijab is the safeguard of a woman’s chastity.  In light of the status of the women and their greatness, they have been given this command.  Following the Hijab, she can go to those places where there is no free mixing of men and women along with her Mahram (Husband or those relatives along with whom marriage is permanently not allowed) relatives.  There is no harm if they use the family sections in hotels where everybody is not allowed, in times of need like in a journey or such.


Translation of Hadith:  Allah Ta’ala has permitted you women to step out of your houses for your needs.  (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2, Pg. No. 788, Hadith No. 5237)
