It is permissible and correct for a woman to lead other women in prayer.

Women leading prayers ?

Can women pray in congregation ( Jamaah ) with a woman performing as Imaam ?

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not prescribed for women to recite the adhaan and iqaamah as it is for men. 

If a woman does recite the adhaan and iqaamah, it may be one of the three following scenarios:

1       – She recites the adhaan and iqaamah for a group of men only, or for a mixed group of men and women. This is not prescribed in Islam and her adhaan and iqaamah for a group of men do not count

2       – She recites them for a group of women only.

3       – Or she recites them for herself when she is alone.

It is permissible for her to recite the adhaan :

  • for a group of women or
  • for herself…

Can he be alone with a woman to lead her in prayer?

If he leads the non-mahram woman in prayer and is alone with her, that is haraam for him and for her.

Can he be alone with a woman to lead her in prayer?

It is not permissible for a man to be alone with a woman who is not his mahram.

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said:

“No man should be alone with a woman unless there is a mahram with her.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5233) and Muslim (1341).

And he ( Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said:

No man is alone with a (non-mahram) woman but the shaytaan is the third one present.”

Narrated by Ahmad (178) and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel (1813).

These ahaadeeth are general in meaning and indicate that it is haraam for a man to be alone with a non-mahram woman under any circumstances, even if that is for the purpose of prayer.

The scholars have stated that this is forbidden.

Al-Nawawi said in al-Majmoo’ (4/174):

Our companions said:

The story of Haajar and Zamzam from the Sunnah

She heard the voice again and said, “O (whoever you may be)!

You have made me hear your voice; have you got something to help me?” And she saw an angel at the place of Zamzam, digging the earth with his heel (or his wing), till water flowed from that place.

The story of Haajar and Zamzam from the Sunnah

Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated the story of 

Haajar, the wife of Ibraaheem and the mother of his son Ismaa’eel.

He said:

Ibraaheem brought her and her son Ismaa’eel while she was suckling him, to a place near the Ka’bah under a tree on the spot of Zamzam, at the highest place in the mosque.

During those days there was nobody in Makkah, nor was there any water.

So he made them sit over there and placed near them a leather bag containing some dates, and a small water-skin containing some water, and set out homeward.

Ismaa’eel’s mother followed him saying, “O Ibraaheem! 

Where are you going, leaving us in this valley where there is no person whose company we may enjoy, nor is there anything (to enjoy)?”

She repeated that to him many times, but…

One of the characteristics of Makkan verses is that they are addressed to all of mankind.

The one who ponders all of these verses will find that they are addressed to

all of mankind,
believers and disbelievers,
righteous and evildoers

لا إله إلا الله


One of the characteristics of Makkan verses is that they are addressed to all of mankind.

The call in the Holy Qur’aan, “O mankind” is mentioned in twenty places in the Book:

  • two in Soorat al-Baqarah,
  • four in al-Nisa’,
  • one in al-A’raaf,
  • four in Yoonus,
  • four in al-Hajj,
  • one in Luqmaan,
  • three in Faatir and
  • one in al-Hujuraat.

The one who ponders all of these verses will find that they are addressed to

  • all of mankind,
  • believers and disbelievers,
  • righteous and evildoers,

Calling them to think about that which will benefit them in the Hereafter and reminding them of the Lordship of Allah over them and their need for Him, so that this will motivate them to worship Him alone with no partner or associate, and to devote their religious commitment sincerely to Him alone.

Because this is addressed to all of mankind, and is not limited to any specific…

This is the New-age Scholar. Do you want to follow him?

But as for today’s ‘scholars’?

لا إله إلا الله


The ‘New-age Scholar’

Long gone are the days of men and women spending years and years of their life studying before opening their mouths about the deen.

Long gone are the days of students memorizing, studying, revising, and researching from sun up to sun down.

Long gone are the days when seeking knowledge was taken as a lifestyle by those who wanted to teach their brothers and sisters.

Great mountains of knowledge like Imam Maalik, or Ash Shafi’ee would not teach nor give fatawa until 40, 50, and sometimes 70 scholars and teachers verified their understanding and gave them permission to teach.

But as for today’s ‘scholars’?

NO NEED! As long as they say good things and know some Arabic and Quran they are just fine!

So the people are pleased with this because the ‘New-age scholar’ says everything they want to hear.

He’s the ‘cool’ Imam. The ‘funny Shaykh’…
