Question:

Can women attend Salah in the Masjid

Answer

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.

  1. Proper pardah
  2. She should have no perfume on
  3. She should not display any make up or jewelleries
  4.  There should be no intermingling with men, there should be separate facilities for women.
