Hafiza leading other women in Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In beheshti zewar it is mentioned that for a lady to be the Imam with another lady muqtadi is makrooh-e-tahrimi. A hafiza wants to make her Khatam in taraweeh Salaah in Ramadan, but her dohr is not strong and she needs someone to correct her mistakes. Will it still be makrooh for her sibling to read with her and correct her mistakes?


A: Yes. It is not permissible (makrooh-e-tahrimi) for a woman to lead the Salaah. She should read her dhor to someone out of Salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
