Private Gyming For Ladies

Will it be permissible to exercise in a facility where statues are displayed? The reason for use of this facility is its complete privacy for ladies. It is not a public gym and it’s a private session.

Answer:

It is not even permissible for women to leave the sacred confines of their homes –the Bastions of their Haya and Imaan – to exercise in gyms and other facilities. This does not come under the scope of “necessary emergence”. A woman is allowed to do physical exercise at her home. The sin is aggravated by the display of statues of shir’k at this venue.
