Author(s):  FAROKHI MEYSAM, Piruzi n.
This research was designed to understand the extent and the way women participate in mosques and compare them with the teachings of Islam in the mosques of Pakdasht city. In this way, the statistical population of the study included all women who were active, semi-active or inactive in the mosque and its affairs. The data collection tool was a qualitative and profound interview with some of the women who purposefully selected 6 mosques (Imam Sadiq (as), Amir al-Momenin (AS) mosque, al-Mahdi mosque (AS), Sahib Al-Zaman (AS), Imam Hussein (AS) and Seyyed al-Shohada) were selected from all the mosques in the city of Pakdasht and from different regions and according to different geographical directions (Kermaniya, Sharifabad, Qoah, Jamal Abad, Qala Nou and Namjoo settlements). The data from these interviews were analyzed using thematic analysis. The findings showed that women can participate in mosque affairs in many different ways. Participation in a variety of affairs included a total participation in cultural activities, political affairs and social affairs in the mosque. Political activities at the lowest level and social activities were at the highest level of activity. In the sense that most women were referred to as social interactions from the presence of mosque activities. However, among these activities, cultural affairs were more diverse. The final findings showed that there is a relatively large gap between Islamic teachings in terms of attending mosque affairs and theoretical view or practical action.
