Women Praying in the Masjid

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Does the hadith "a woman's prayer in her home is better..." apply to all women? Shaykh Muhammad al-Dado answers:

The more favorable opinion is that it does not apply to every woman. The Prophet peace be upon him told this to Umm Humayd Al-Sa'idiyyah, and it appears to be specifically pertaining to her because other women would pray Fajr and all the other prayers with the Prophet peace be upon him.
