Women Murids, Jummah Prayer


Assalamu Alikum,
In reference to going to Jummah Prayer are ladies permitted to go to Jummah Prayer, if so do we add four rakata‘s after Jummah prayer for fard Zhur prayer? Also, if Jummah prayer is done at an office building do we still do 2 rakats before the Jummah Prayer starts or do we proceed in Jummah Prayer, then do 4 rakat fard for Zhur prayer and four sunnah?


wa `alaykum salam,

Muslim men are more deserving to offer Jum’ah prayer. If women are taking space of men intending to offer Jum’ah prayer then they should pray at home.

If they happen to be offering this weekly prayer in a Jama’ah, they are to add four rak’ats of Zuhr prayer just like men. We are not obligated to offer two rak’ats of ‘Tahiyyatul-Masjid’ in an office building.
