Title: I would like to know whether the Takbeerat is also wajib for females or not?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is Wajib for women to recite the Takbeerat al-Tashreeq. They will recite the Takbeerat al-Tashreeq softly.

This is the viewpoint of Imam Muhammed (Rahimahullah) and Imam Abu Yusuf (Rahimahullah), which is the preferred juridical position in the Hanafi Mazhab. (Fatawa Raheemiyyah, Vol.6, Pg.177)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
