    Yes, of course.
    Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

          I have been taught that when the jamaat consists only of women, then a man cannot lead unless he is the mahrim of one of the women. If not, then a woman must lead prayers.

                  Although I am not sure about this I read somewhere that only men are allowed to lead prayers whether the congregation consists of men or women.

                    Well people...

                    As far as my knowledge goes... A woman can definitly go to a mosque for prayers and if the congregation consists of women only then a woman can be the Imam aswell. Its nothing forbidden or of dispute in nature...

                    You see, one thing is, I can live with doubt and uncertainty and
                    not knowing. I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing
                    than to have answers which might be wrong.
                    I don't feel frightened not knowing things, by being lost in a
                    mysterious universe without any purpose, which is the way it really is as far as I can tell. It doesn't frighten me.

                      and why would that be the case. why can't a woman lead?

                        they can lead... just because she stands in center of the first row doesn't mena she is not leading the prayer, she is the one who lead and other women follow her.

                        it is not much different that when a man lead. the only difference is that they stand in different places.
                        and this difference is nothing of concern because there are some differences also in prayer (men & women pray a little differently beased on their gender) and it's just different ... nothing that makes you superior or inferior.

                          you are right.
                          women can to masjid.

                          and they can lead the prayer if others are women around them.

                            Of course they can go to a Masjid to pray. All the masjids i've been to have seperate sections (including entrances) for women.

                              There is nothing against women going to masjids, but it is best for them to pray at home.

                              A woman can lead a prayer only when the jamaat consists of only females, then a woman can call the aqimah and another can lead, but a woman can't call the adhaan. I've never heard of any special place she has to stand, from my understanding she can stand anywhere in the line, just not infront or apart from the jamaat.

                              Allah(swt) knows best.
