(Fatwa: 1131/881/D=10/1434)

The women were stopped from going to the mosque for Eid salah or five times salah in the era of Ameerul Momineen Umar bin al-Khattab (رضي الله عنه) due to the fear of fitnah and on the basis of some hadith indications. At present days, the condition is bad to worst; hence it is better to follow that ruling. Now there is no need to check where the fear of fitnah exists and where not.

Allah knows Best!
