The Taraweeh Prayer of a Women
Question:

In terms of receiving greater reward, is it better for a women to pray taraweeh at home alone in her bedroom or in congregation at the masjid.Keeping in mind her limited knowledge of Quraan.
Answer:

Voluntary (Nawafil) prayer is better prayed in the home, for both men and women, and regarding the women specifically the matter is left open or she has the choice. So if a woman were to pray in the masjid,she is rewarded accordingly and if she prayed in her home, it is better because the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam -said that her home is better for her.
