Difference between the salaah of men and women

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Many people ask me that salah of men and women are different. Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has denied us to prostrate like a dog. Is it applicable for women also? 


A: The laws for women are different to the laws of men in many respects. For example, their aurah is totally different to the aurah of men.

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