Janaazah Salaah for Women

read time: 1 minute

 

Question and Answer:

 

  1. Can a woman perform Janaazah Salaah in the Haram behind the Imaam? I see many South African women not performing Janaazah Salaah behind the Imaam in the Haram.

 

(Question published as received)

 

  1. There is no obligation on women to perform Salaah in the Haram. However, in an event of women being present in the Haram at the time of Salaah or Janaazah Salaah, they may join and follow the Imaam of the Haram for the Fardh and Janaazah Salaah. (Al-Muheetul-Burhaani 2/197)
