$10.00 USD


Ibn Hazm,the great Andalusian jurist, poet, and intellectual champion of the Zahiri school, discussed this issue comprehensively in his Muhalla. In the text translated, he asks and, after weighing the evidence, answers the following questions: Is it lawful for women to attend congregational prayers in the mosques? (Yes) Is it lawful for others to forbid this if, for some private or public reason, they happen to dislike it or disapprove of it? (No) Is the effort of attending the prayers with the congregation in the mosque more worthy for men than women? (No, it is the same) Is it lawful only for elderly women to attend the congregational prayers in the mosques? (No, it is equally lawful for old or young).

This book is an important step forward in unraveling the confusion of the ages and moving closer to the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam to give women their due rights in worshiping Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.
