Women reading Taraweeh in jamaat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q:

1. I wanted to know if two women are reading Taraweeh together, must the one leading for those rakaats stand a little forward and the one following a little behind, or must they stand in line?

2. If one woman isn’t reading, can she sit with a Qur’aan next to the one who’s reading Taraweeh, and correct her if she makes a mistake ? (The one reading will be reciting in a slightly audible tone, is this permissible as well?)

Bismillaah

A:

1. It is makrooh for women to perform namaaz in congregation. They must read individually.

2. She cannot correct.

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