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 a few conditions. They are as follows:
- Proper pardah.
- She should have no perfume on.
- She should not display any makeup or jewellery.
- There should be no intermingling with men, there should be separate facilities for women.
