Mufti Ebrahim Desai

A man and woman (husband and wife or Mahrams) may recite their Salaat
individually in one room.

There is no restriction with regards to the distance between them as long as
they are not reciting the same Salaat, i.e. they are reading their own
Salaat and not following each other. However, if the man is the Imaam and
woman is following him in that Salaat, then she should stand directly behind
