    Question Women only Masjid

    Report bad ads?



    I was wondering whether it was allowed to have women's only masjids where it is run by women, for women and the imam is a woman and all money coming in controlled by female Muslims.

    Would that be permissable in Islam???

    Re: Women only Masjid



    It is just that some non-muslim asked me this and i told him that i'd get back to him. From my understanding i'd have thought it to be ok as long as the women lead the women in prayers and have no contact with men. Come to think of it, the women's section in all masjids is normally run by women. Allah knows best/

    There was a programme (pakistani Really i think it was) on TV about three weeks ago about a school that teaches how to become an imam near wales i think. There were women imams there who went to the hospitals to visit the sick etc. Could anyone remembers the school's name??

    No worries . . . The answer's right over here:

    . . . but first: have you heard of Masjid Fatimah?

    :sister: I think that should help you there in finding out whether it's right or wrong. It is OK; there's nothing wrong with that, according to Islam, but there is alot wrong with it, if you are asking from a more cultural point of view, because many people are brought up to be taught that things like that are not permissible; when they are. The Quran tell's us that majority; not knowing the truth; turn away. Refer to Surah al-Anbiyah 21: verse 24 for details. And this is'nt an issue which is very difficult to understand, nor is it something impermissible . . .

    Re: Women only Masjid



    So you are saying nothing is wrong with it??

    I just thought of something:- If the masjid is open only for women, then if a man (who was doing his shopping) needed to pray maghrib and the female masjid was the only one close by, well, he couldnt pray there, could he?? provided a lady would be the imam and is forbidden to lead a man. Men are obligated to pray at the mosque whereas for women, it is not compulsory. Therefore why deprive a man of congregation prayers just because it is only females, especially when it is not obligatory on them to pray in congregation.

    Given the above argument, i think it would be pointless to have female only masjids when they cant cater for both genders unlike the normal masjids.

    Very good argument, but that does not make it impermissible (haram).

    Re: Women only Masjid

    yes but if women want to pray then they can do so in the many masjids that cater for both genders........ the other point is that like what the sis mentioned above it is not obligatory on the women to pray in the masjid.

    and allah talah knows best

    :brother: In that case building any sort of Mosque would be un-necessary anyway whether for men or women, because the only prayer which has been made compulsory to pray in the mosque is Salatul-Jumu'ah (the Friday Prayer) . . .

    And that's not all; Jumu'ah applies to Women as well as Men. If it was compulsory for women to pray the friday prayer at the time of the Prophet (saw) and they prayed in masjid Fatimah; then why is it no longer compulsory. Are you saying that Islam has regular updates? (Na'uthubillah min thaalik) . . .

    Please keep one thing in mind: the nature of Allah never changes; refer to Surah ar-Rum 30: verse 30 for details . . .

    Re: Women only Masjid



    erm..women was never made compulsory to pray in congregation on fridays.
    It is encouraged men to pray 5 times a day at the masjid (27 more ajar), unlike women.

    No one here is saying that Islam has regular updates.Istaaghfurrallaah.

    oh ..good point sis.. Didnt think about this angle. The responsibility of a mother and a wife are greater than being an imam where you have to be available for the community on regular basis.
