Q: Is a woman allowed to go for 40 days jamaat if her child is only 2 years old? What’s the best for her? Either to go for jamaat or stay home to take care of her child.
A: Taking care of her infant child is a Deeni obligation. Hence, she should stay at home and take care of the child.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
