Fiqh-us-Sunnah Volume 1, Purification and Prayer, Fiqh 1.104A.

Section : The Azhan and Iqamah for Women.

Said Ibn ‘Umar, “There is no azhan or iqamah for women.” (Related by al-Baihaqi with a sahih chain.) This was the opinion of Anas, al-Hassan, Ibn Sireen, an-Nakha’i, al-Thauri, Malik, Abu Thaur and the people of “juristic reasoning.” Ash-Shaifi, Ishaq and Ahmad said if they make the iqamah and azhan, there is no problem. It is related from ‘Aishah that she would make the azhan and iqamah and lead the women in prayer, standing in the middle of the row. (Related by al-Baihaqi.)
