Women Going To The Masjid

It is legislated for the woman to perform her prayers in her house, for this is from the prescribed Islamic duties (relate to the affairs of) the household.

The prayer of the woman in her house is better than her prayer in the mosque of her people, and her prayer in the mosque of her people is better than her prayer in the mosque of the Messenger of Allah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) as has been established in the hadeeth.  And for that reason the obligation of the Juma’ah prayer is lifted from her.

She is allowed to go to the mosque (whilst observing) the following rulings:

[1] She is safe from being a trial and that she is not put to trial herself.

[2]  Her presence does not result in the violation of an Islamic rule.

[3]  She is neither crowded with men in the road nor in the Mosque.

[4]  She goes out with a neutral smell and not perfumed.

[5]  That she goes out with the hijaab and not displaying her beautification.

[6]  There should be a specific door for the women in the mosque, through which they enter and exit the mosque, as established in the hadith in sunan abee daawood and other than it.

[7]  The rows of the women are behind that of the men.

[8]  The best of rows for the women are the back rows as opposed to that of the men.

[9]  And if the Imaam (adds something in the salaah that is not to be part of it or leaves something that should be part of it unintentionally), then the men are to say subhaanallaah and the woman is to clap.

[10]  The women are to exit the mosque before the men. And it is required of the men to wait until the women are dispersed, as (reported) in the hadeeth of Umm Salamah (radiyallaahu-anhaa) in Saheeh Al Bukhaaree.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]

    Salam alaykum,I want to ask:if your go to the masjid during the forbidden times to pray(sun setting or rising) are you still required to pray tahiyyatul masjid?

    • Wa’alaykum assalaam wa rahmatullaah…

      Yes you can pray tahiyyatul masjid according to the correct view not unless your sole purpose is only to pray tahiyyatul masjid.

      Wallaahu a’lam bissawaab.
