Can women pray funeral prayer
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: Are ladies allowed to go to mosque
Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not keep the slave girls of Allah from the mosques of Allah. And they are to go out unperfumed."
Related by Ahmad and Abu Dawud.
Ibn 'Umar reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not prevent the women from going to the mosques, although their houses are better for them."
Related by Ahmad and Abu Dawud.
Abu Hurairah also reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "Any woman who uses some scent should not be present with us during the night prayer."
Related by Muslim, Abu Dawud, and an-Nasa'i.
Ahmad and at-Tabarani record that Umm Humaid as-Sa'diyah came to the Messenger of Allah(saws) and said: "O Messenger of Allah, I love to pray with you." The Prophet(saws) said: "I am aware of that, but your salah in your residence is better for you than your salah in your people's mosque. And your salah in your people's mosque is better than your salah in the [larger] congregational Mosque."
Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet (saws) and the mother of the believers, related that the Prophet (saws) came to the mosque's courtyard and said at the top of his voice, "The mosque is off limits to menstruating women and the sexually impure persons." (Related by Ibn Majah and at-Tabarani.)
In light of the above narrations, although it is better for women to pray in their houses than to attend congregational prayers in the mosques they may go to the mosque and attend the congregational prayer if they wish to do so, provided they avoid wearing or using any attractive, or tempting adornment, or perfume.
Your Question: I wanted to ask dat does ladies have a jamat.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 2.58
Aishah used to lead the believing women in salah and stand with the women in the middle of the first row. Umm Salamah would also do so. The Prophet (saws) appointed Waraqah to go and make the adhan for her while he instructed her to lead the women of her household in the obligatory prayers.
It is absolutely permissible in Islam for a believing woman to lead congregational prayers of other women, if the need or occasion so arises. The only difference between a man leading congregational prayers of the believers and the woman leading congregational prayers of the believing women is that the imam amongst the men will stand ahead of the first row, and the imam amongst the women will stand with the women in the middle of the first row.
Your Question: read eid ki namaz
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 2.147
The prayers of the two Eids was prescribed in the first year after the migration. It is a Sunnah Muakkadah as the Prophet (saws) always performed these prayers, and he (saws) ordered the men and women to go out to attend them.
Umm 'Atiyah reports: "We were ordered by the Prophet (saws) to go out with the single and menstruating women to the two Eids in order to witness the good and the supplications of the Muslims. The menstruating women would be separate from the others."
Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
Ibn 'Abbas says that the Prophet (saws) would take his wives and daughters to the two Eid (prayers).
Related by Ibn-Majah and al-Baihaqi.
Ibn 'Abbas reports: "I went out with the Prophet (saws) on the day of breaking the fast (Eid Fitr) or of the sacrifice (Eid Adha), and he (saws) prayed and gave a khutbah, and then he (saws) went to the women and admonished them, reminded them of Allah, and ordered them to give charity."
Related by al-Bukhari.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) ordered and encouraged the believing men and the believing woman (menstruating and non-menstruating) to attend the Eid sermon and the prayers. Even menstruating women should attend the Eid gatherings, listen to the sermon, but they should obviously abstain from the prayers because of their state of impurity.
Your Question: aur namaz-e-janazah
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 4.53b
A woman, like a man, may offer a funeral prayer, singly or in a congregation. It is recorded that when Umm 'Abdallah offered funeral prayer for Utbah, Hadrat Umar (r.a.) waited until she had finished. Hadrat Aishah (r.a.) ordered the body of Sa'd ibn Abi Waqqas (r.a.), a companion of the Prophet (saws), to be brought to her so that she could offer a funeral prayer over him.
An-Nawawi said: "Women may offer (funeral) prayer in congregation just as they are permitted to perform other sunnah prayers. Al-Hasan ibn Saleh, Sufiyan Al-Thawri, Ahmad, and Imam Abu Haneefah of the Hanafi school of thought also hold the same view.
It is absolutely permissible in Islam for a believing woman to offer funeral prayers singly or in congregation, just as she offers other Sunnah or supererogatory prayers.
