A woman calling the adhaan and iqaamah

Reference: Sharh ‘Umdatil-Fiqh – Tape No.8, Question No.6

Question: When the woman prays in her home, should she do so without calling the iqaamah?

Response: The woman is not required to call the iqaamah for the prayer inside her home, nor outside of it; she is not to call the iqaamah. The [calling of the] adhaan and the iqaamah are from the specific activities related only to men, because there is no evidence to suggest that women call the adhaan.
