Question :

Is it allowed for a woman to perform Eid prayer at home?

The Answer :

Praise be to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammad and upon his family and righteous companions.

It is allowed for a woman to perform Eid prayer at home since the scholars of the Shafite School of Jurisprudence said: “It is allowed for an individual, a woman and a traveler to perform Eid prayer.”

Offering Eid prayer in congregation is from the Prophetic Sunnah, thus it is recommended that she leads her daughters in offering it.

Imam Al-Nawawi states: “Is it permissible for a slave, a woman, a traveler and a person to offer Eid prayer at home or else ? The most valid ruling is that it is permissible." [Al-Majjmou vol.5/pp.26]. And Allah, The Exalted, Knows Best.
