How do I pray Salaah at home with my wife following me?

Question:

 

Please advise the procedure of how Salaah should be performed if the husband and wife perform Salaah at home.

 

Answer:

 

The wife should stand directly behind the husband and the husband should lead the Salaah by making the intention that he is leading a female in Salaah. (Raddul Muhtaar, Vol: 1. Pg: 566, al-Maktabah at-Tijariyyah, al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah, Vol: 1, Pg: 66, Dar Ihya-it Turath al-Arabi)

 

أما الواحدة فتتأخر

وَلَا يَصِيرُ إمَامًا لِلنِّسَاءِ إلَّا بِالنِّيَّةِ . هَكَذَا فِي الْمُحِيطِ

 

And Allah Knows Best
