Woman leading other women in congregational Salah
Q. Is it permissible for a woman to lead another woman in Salah (Prayer)? If it is permissible, where should the Ma’mum (a person being led by an Imam in Prayer) woman stand?
A. It is permissible for a woman to lead women in Salah and she should stand in the middle. If the Ma’mum is only one woman, then she should stand on the right side of the leading woman.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
