Receiving the reward of jamaat salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I just wanted to ask that if I, as the son lead my mom in prayer while she stands directly behind me, is that fine?

2. If I make my nephew stand with me or my son who has not yet reached the age of puberty yet in Salat, will it still count as if I did my Salat in Jamat? Will I get the rewards mentioned for praying Salat in Jamat. 



1. Yes.

2. Yes.

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