Q: Is it permissible to have Taalim programmes for women on a weekly basis? We were thinking of initiating a set programme but an Aalim has stated that since women are not encouraged to go out for their Fardh Salaah to the Musaajid, how then can they go out for Taaleem..
Please advise! Wassalaam
It is permissible for women to gather for Basic Taleem. This should be done within one's locality, zone, unit. Laws of Hijaab must be strictly adhered to. Protection of chastity, honor, dignity, and general safety must be given top priority.
