SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 570)

WOMAN’S PRAYER (SALAH) IN HER HOME IS BETTER THAH PRAYING AT MASJID:-

WHENEVER A WOMAN PRAYS IN A PLACE THAT IS MORE PRIVATE AND MORE HIDDEN, THAT IS BETTER FOR HER:-

Ibn Muthanna, said Asim bin Amr told them he told us Hammam from Qataadah Ahwas sprouted from Abu ‘Abd-Allaah that the Prophet peace be upon him said a woman’s prayer in her house is better than her prayer in her courtyard and prayer in her bedroom is better than her prayer in her house.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 2, Hadith 567) See also Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 3833..

Abdullah Bin Mas’ud reported the Prophet (pbuh) as saying: It is more excellent for a woman to pray in her house than in her courtyard, and more excellent for her to pray in her private chamber than in her house.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 2, Hadith 570)

“Her room” refers to a woman’s own room in the house, and “her courtyard” refers to the central area (in a traditional Arabic house), off which all the rooms of the house open.

A cabinet is like a small room inside the large room, in which personal items are stored.

(Commentary from ‘Awn al-Ma’bood).

It was narrated that Umm Humayd the wife of Abu Humayd al-Saa’idi came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I like to pray with you.” He said, “I know that you like to pray with me, but your prayer in your room is better for you than your prayer in your courtyard and your prayer in your courtyard is better for you than your praying in your house, and your prayer in your house is better for you than your prayer in the mosque of your people, and your prayer in the mosque of your people is better for you than your prayer in my mosque.” So she issued orders that a prayer-place be prepared for her in the furthest and darkest part of her house, and she used to pray there until she met Allaah (i.e., died).”

MUSNAD AHMED – 26550.

This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh, 3/95; Ibn Maajah, 5/595; al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1/135.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:-

The Sunnah indicates that it is better for a woman to pray at home, no matter where she is, whether she is in Makkah or elsewhere. Hence the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not prevent the female slaves of Allaah from coming to the mosques of Allaah, but their houses are better for them.”

He said that when he was in Madeenah, even though prayer in the Prophet’s Mosque brings more reward, because a woman’s prayer in her own house is more covering for her and farther removed from temptation (fitnah), so if she is in her house then this is preferable and is better.

Fataawa al-Jaami’ah li’l-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, vol. 1, p. 207

‘Abd al-‘Azeem Abaadi said:

The reason why their praying in their homes is better is because it is safer from fitnah or temptation. This was later borne out by the way in which women began to make a wanton display of their adornments, hence ‘Aa’ishah said what she said.

(‘Awn al-Ma’bood, 2/193).

Hence women should be careful when praying in public places, or go far away from where men can see them, and should not pray in a public place when the time of prayer comes, unless she has no other place in which to pray.

Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah al-Jibreen said:

With regard to women, their houses are better for them. If they need to pray in the marketplace and there is a place that is screened off, there is nothing wrong with them praying there, in sha Allah.

Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 1/333
