For a woman who’s Mazur and makes wudhu for each prayer does the rule apply that if she gets the last rakah of the prayer she got the entire salah?

When times running out.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


She must sit in the last sitting (qa’dah akheerah) for a time duration in which one would pray from Tashahhud till ‘Abduhu wa Rasuluhu’ of the Durood. [1]

If she does this much within the salah’s time frame, her prayer is valid.


[1] Raddul Muhtaar 1/448

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
