Hadith on Mosques: Umar does not stop his wife from visiting the Masjid

Ibn Umar reported: One of the wives of Umar attended dawn and evening prayers in congregation in the mosque. It was said to her, “Why do you go out while you know Umar dislikes it and he is jealous?” She said, “What stops him from prohibiting me?” It was said, “The statement of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him: Do not prevent the maidservants of Allah from the mosques of Allah.”

عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ كَانَتْ امْرَأَةٌ لِعُمَرَ تَشْهَدُ صَلَاةَ الصُّبْحِ وَالْعِشَاءِ فِي الْجَمَاعَةِ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ فَقِيلَ لَهَا لِمَ تَخْرُجِينَ وَقَدْ تَعْلَمِينَ أَنَّ عُمَرَ يَكْرَهُ ذَلِكَ وَيَغَارُ قَالَتْ وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُ أَنْ يَنْهَانِي قَالَ يَمْنَعُهُ قَوْلُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا تَمْنَعُوا إِمَاءَ اللَّهِ مَسَاجِدَ اللَّهِ
