Isn't the reason why the sisters in Islam are not learning because of the following?

The brothers are supposed to come home and teach the sisters the khutbah after it is done, yet they don't less a very small few.

Even though she is not going to the mosque she should aquire regarding the khutbah.

What about her barakah and rahma, she didn't get her name recorded as going to the house of Allah, so where is her blessings and mercy coming from then, what she gets it for free while others are struggling to make their taqua?

What about all they are missing, so a woman is not a human being. 99% out of 100% the reason why she is not learned is because she doesn't go or is not allowed to go to the mosque.

When did you people decide that it was ok for you to learn and not them? It was ok for you to get hasinate and barakah with Rahma from Allah and not them? Who gave you this authority which you were never given?

    All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

    Dear questioner, we would like to commend you for showing keenness on knowing the teachings of Islam. We hope our efforts meet your expectations.

    There is no any hindrance for women to pray in the Mosques along with men. At the time of the Prophet, women used to perform prayers in the Mosque along with men. Not only that, but they used to attend religious classes and share the events such as the `Eid prayers with men. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “Do not prevent the she-servants of Allah from Allah's mosques.”

    Responding to the question, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, states the following:

    Women used to attend the jama`ah or congregational Prayers and the Friday Prayers in the Prophet's Mosque. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to urge them to stand in the last rows behind men.

    At the beginning, men and women used to enter through the same door. When this caused overcrowding on entrances and exits, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him, said: "(It would be better) if this door is left for women." Upon saying so, the men made that door for women, and it became known up until today as "The Women's Door".

    Moreover, women, at the time of the Prophet, used to attend the Friday Prayer; they used to perform the Prayer regularly and listen to the khutbah to the extent that one of them could recite Surat Qaf as she heard the Prophet recite it several times in the Friday khutbah. Women also used to attend the `Eid Prayers and participate in that big Islamic festival that included the old and the young, men as well as women, out in the open, all worshipping Allah.

    Umm `Attiyyah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated, "We used to be ordered to come out on the Day of the `Eid and even bring out the virgin girls from their houses and menstruating women so that they might stand behind the men and say takbir along with them and invoke Allah along with them and hope for the blessings of that day and for purification from sins." (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

    Moreover, women used to attend religious sermons with men at the Prophet's house and they used to inquire about religious matters that many women nowadays would find embarrassing to ask about. For instance, `A'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) praised the women of Al-Ansar for trying to understand their religion without being held back by bashfulness for they used to ask about such matters as major ritual impurity, wet dream, purificatory bath, menstruation, chronic vaginal discharge, etc.

    And when women found that men's questions were taking most of the Prophet's time, they plainly requested the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to make a special day for women. So the Prophet dedicated a day for them when he used to give them lessons and sermons. (Narrated by Al-Bukhari)

    If people, even women, are supposed to learn everything from one short, weekly sermon, then Islam is doomed as a religion.

    Anyway women go to the mosque, too. I've heard dozens of khutba. Any mosque that is not allowing women inside is committing a huge sin. That sin cannot be transferred to the women who are barred from going inside.

    G-d guides those he wishes and doesn't guide those he doesn't wish to guide.
