Can women attend Salah in the Masjid
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
It is better and more rewarding for a woman to read her salah at home. However, if a woman wants to attend the congregation then she has to observe few conditions.
- Proper pardah
- She should have no perfume on
- She should not display any make up or jewelleries
- There should be no intermingling with men, there should be separate facilities for women.
