Can women pray in masjid
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 none 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: .whether Islam permits women to Mosque to offer namaz..?
Although the believing women are not prevented or prohibited in the least in Shariah if they wish to offer their prayers in the mosques in congregation, the Messenger of Allah (saws) guided that the prayers of the believing women in their homes are better and more meritorious in the Sight of Allah than their prayer in the mosques.
Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not keep the slave girls of Allah (believing women) from going to the mosques of Allah. And they are to go out unperfumed."
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."

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."
