Can women attend Taravi Namaz and Ijtimai Ibadat in a masjid?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
assalam-o-aliakum 1. My question is i am a follower of HANAFI and my wife wishes to go to perform the TARAVI NAMAZ IN A MASJID IN OUR TOWN. We have been told by many muftis here that the women should read their taravi at home. Please let me know what should i make my wife follow. 2. My other question is that during the last 10 nights of the month of RAMAZAN the masjid in our neighbourhood the Hafiz Saheb who is also the IMAM of the Masjid tells the MUssalis to regather at 11.30 or 12 P>M that is after taravi fro DUA, wich goes on for upto 2 to 2.30 AM in the morning. Are we allowed to have Ijtimai IBADAT durin these nights anf also many women come from various places to attend this DUA as they announce that provision is made fro women also. Hope i have been clear in my questions JAZZAKALLA


(Fatwa: 1540/1325=B/1429)

(1)     You should tell your spouse to perform tarawih at home alone; it is better and more rewardable.

(2)     What the Imam Sahib does is incorrect. At nights of the last ten days of the Ramzan, it is not proved for men or women to gather together. Every one should pray separately as per his convenience. There is no need to call people from their houses; otherwise it will cause innovation to creep in.
