A woman praying inside her home

Reference: al-Muntaqaa min Fataawa Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan – Volume 3, Page 300, Fatwa No.443

Question: When should a woman pray inside the home, is it after the adhaan [has been called locally] or after the iqaamah [has been called]?

Response: If the time [for the prayer] has arrived, then the women who are in the homes should pray and not wait for the iqaamah [to be called], rather, they should pray after hearing the adhaan [having been called] if the mu.adhdhin calls the adhaan [promptly] at the time of the prayer. And it is permissible for them to delay [the prayer] from its initial time of arrival, and Allaah [alone] has the Complete knowledge [of all affairs].
