read time: 1 minute



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




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
