Women performing Salaah behind the Imaam in Madinah Munawwarah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can Women read salaah behind the Imaam in Madinah?


A: Generally the Imaams don’t make niyyat for the women who are behind. Hence, women should not perform namaaz behind them.

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