Husband and wife performing Salaah individually in the same room

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a husband and wife are performing salah individually in the same room, is there any basis of the wife not being allowed to be ahead of her husband in standing?


A: The law of remaining behind the husband only pertains to the situation where they are performing Salaah in jamaat.

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