Can a Woman Administer Shahada to a New Muslim?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulihsan.com
She is helping him memorize the verses and whenever he offers Salah, she helps him. Under the circumstances, has she done the right thing?

A: Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

It is permissible for a female to make a male take the Shahaada. Under the circumstances, the lady has done the correct thing. She could continue to educate the new Muslim with regards to Salah and other aspects of Deen. However, she should observe the Shariah laws of Hijab whilst doing so.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
