Unlike men, women have been put under less burden as far as directives and
decrees of Islam are concerned. For example, they have been exempted from
Jihād. Similarly, they have been exempted from the Friday congregation.
Likewise, they have also been relieved of the responsibility to appear in
the mosque for the daily prayers. All this is because of their
circumstances, temperament and line of activities.
At the same
time, Muslim men have been directed to let their wives go to the mosque in
case they want to and never to stop them. So, in other words, they can pray
at home without bothering about losing any reward and at the same time if
their circumstances are such that they can easily and safely go to the
mosque, no one should stop them.
