Women reward praying alone
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not keep the slave girls of Allah (believing women) from going to the Masjids of Allah. And they are to go out unperfumed."
Ibn 'Umar reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not prevent the women from going to the Masjids, although their (own) houses are better for them."

Umm Humaid as-Sa'diyah (r.a.) came to the Messenger of Allah(saws) and said: "O Messenger of Allah (saws), I love to pray with you (in congregation in the Masjid)." The Prophet (saws) said: "I am aware of that, but your salah in your residence is better for you than your salah in your people's masjid. And your salah in your people's masjid is better than your salah in the [larger] congregational Masjids."

Although it is permissible for a believing women to offer her prayers in the masjids in congregation with the believers, because of the nature of her duties and responsibilities the Lord Most Merciful has not made it obligatory upon the believing women to offer their obligatory prayers in the masjids like the men. The Messenger of Allah (saws) guided that the prayers of the believing women offered in her own house is better and more meritorious in the Sight of Allah Subhanah than in the masjids, but if a believing woman has a chance, or wishes to occasionally offer her prayers in congregation with the believers in the masjidthere is absolutely no harm.

Al-Muwatta Hadith 20.66
Yahya related from Malik, from Sumayy, the
mawla of Abu Bakr ibn Abd ar-Rahman, from Abu Salih as-Samman, from Abu
Hurayra, that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Umrah is an expiation
for what is between it and the next Umrah, and the only reward for an accepted
There is absolutely no denying that the pilgrimage of Hajj is obviously more meritorious than the pilgrimage of the Umrah in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; but to argue that it is not necessary for one, regardless of whether male or female, to perform the Umrah pilgrimage would be inaccurate.
If the Lord Most Gracious has blessed one, regardless of whether male or female, with the physical and financial means to afford the journey, and they ardently desire to visit the Sacred House and perform the Umrah pilgrimage in addition to their Hajj pilgrimage/s.there is absolutely no harm without an extremely strong and valid reason, their loved ones or guardians should not discourage them in offering this sublime worship in the least.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
