Women pray in public places.

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has stated that this earth was made as a Masjid for him and a purifying place. So based upon this Hadith, it is permissible for men and women to pray wherever they are. However, when it comes to our sisters, three things should be kept in mind. Number one is are they going to be able to concentrate in those public places. So for example, if there are a lot of people eating or drinking or being rowdy and things of that nature, perhaps it's not the best place for her to pray in that situation. Number two, is her safety at risk. So as we know, this is a day and age where Islamophobia is becoming rampant, and perhaps there may be a risk

for her. So she should keep in mind that she doesn't want to pray in a place where she could be at risk. And then number three, a place where her modesty will not be exposed so she can stay closer to a wall. If she can stay in an area where she's more confined, then that would be better for her. And again, we recommend that sisters stay in groups when they are praying in public.
