Fataawa Related to women
What are the obligations a woman is to fulfil in order to become a female Muslim who adheres to her Religion?
It is obligatory upon a person– be it a man or woman– to enter into the fold of Islaam and testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah; (he/she should) establish the five daily prayers, pay the zakat, fast the month of Ramadaan and perform the hajj if the means to that is made possible. And (he/she) should believe and adhere to the pillars of Eemaan and they are: Belief in Allaah, belief in His Angels, belief in His Books, belief in His Messengers, belief in the last day and belief in the pre-decree—its good and evil. (And he/she) should fulfil all the remaining obligations and keep away from the forbidden things. So by way of this (a person) becomes a true Muslim.
