    Title: Tarawih Salah for Women

    Question: Please give me fatwa about tarawih namaz for women. Whether women can pray tarawih on separate place in the masjid behind imam jamah? Please give answer for Shafi and Hanafi separately?

    (Fatwa: 995/777/H=1434) Islamic Shariah does not command the women to go to mosque and offer tarawih salah behind imam; \rather they should arrange for tarawih in their homes like the five times of salah. It is makrooh tahrimi for women to visit the mosque. It is so mentioned in Fatawa Shami etc.
