Question: Salam aleykum. I wanted to ask if it's a problem that a muslim woman pray in public places. Thank you.
Answer:
There is no problem for Muslim woman praying in public places. I am assuming she is wearing modestly.
 
If, however, she fears for her safety or eliciting stares, then she may do well to do so in her vehicle or other places (if available) where such issues do not arise.
 
Women during the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to pray in the same hall as men. They were also present in battles and expeditions providing essential services.
