    Question: Though women have no need to offer Eid salah, is it fine for them if there is a facility for women to offer by jamah and there is no fitnah (privacy)?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (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 (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
