Prayer leader’s Message must reach women. “The messenger of Allah, pbuh, led the Eid prayer and then gave the sermon. Then he realized that his voice will not have reached the women. So he walked to the women, gave them the sermon and taught them the message of Islam particularly about charity, sadaqa. Then the women started donating their ear rings and finger rings in the way of Allah [sadaqa].” Hadith narrated by Ibn Abbas, r.a., collected in Sahih Bukhari #962, Sahih Muslim, # 884, Musnad of Ahmad # 1902
