Women’s Leaving Homes to Alleys

Q: We are a group of girls living in a poor quarter. Our houses are mostly small and of poor hygienic conditions which makes it difficult for us to stay for long hours indoors especially during very hot summer days. For this reason, we used to sit out in the alley. According to that, is it ḥarām or even disliked to leave house and sit, nearly every day, outdoors in the alley?

A: If it is done along with observing [Islamic] standards like hijāb and no vile impacts would result, it is permissible.
