Method for Husband and Wife to Pray Together

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Assalaamu’ Alaikum

Respected Sheikh ,

Please explain in detail how a husband and wife will offer Fard Salat at home ?


Wa’alaykum as Salām wa raḥmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

There are only two differences from normal Imāmah (where a man leads men):

1) The husband will first call out the iqāmāh, then step forward.
2) The wife should stand directly behind him the husband.

Thereafter the husband will perform the Imāmah as normal.
