There is no doubt such wa the practice of the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu Ďalaihi-wasallam), as well as the scholars. Indeed, I myself have done that here on a number of occasions as well as Mekkah, Taif, and Jeddah.
I have no problem setting aside apart a specific time for women in any locale if they want that from me. That is also the position of my scholar colleagues.
Furthermore, by the radio programme Noor ala al-Darb, Allah has opened the way to much good. A women can send her question to the programme and during the programme it will be answered. This programme is aired two nights a week on the stations Nida al-Islam al-Qur'an al-Kareem
Similarly, women may write to Dar al-Ifta.In this case, a commitee of scholars may respond to their questions. It has been designed for this purpose.In any case, knowledge is equally obligatory for both men and women. There is nothing to prevent a women from attending lectures, with the condition that she is properly dressed and is not exposing any of her beauty.
