    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1478/1478/M=01/1434) It is mentioned in various hadith regarding the women salah that her salah in her home is better than in mosque. See Abu Dawood, Musnad Ahmad, Sunan Baihaqi, Kanzul Ummal, Majmauz Zawaid). It is narrated in Bukhari by Hadhrat Ayesha (رضى الله عنه) had the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) observed the practices of the woman which they have invented today he would have stopped them from coming the mosques as the women of the children of Israel were stopped: لو أدرك رسول الله صلي الله عليه وسلم ما أحدث النساء لمنعهن المسجد كما منعت نساء بنى اسرائيل (بخارى) Women are stopped to come in the mosque as per this hadith. Why the Ahl Hadith allow ask the reason from them then we would write its reply. A wrong practice should be stopped with wisdom.
