The Ruling of the two Eid [Prayers] for Women

Q. Is the Eid prayer compulsory for women? And if it is, then should she pray it at home or at the place of congregational prayer (muṣallā)?

A. It is not compulsory for women but in her right it is recommended (Sunnah). She should offer it in the place of congregational prayer with the Muslims because the Prophet [ṣallAllāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam] instructed the women to do so.
