Wife performing Salaah in the front and husband performing Salaah behind

Q: Is it a problem if, while I am performing salaah at home and my husband is also performing some salaah separately, but he stands behind me. Not directly behind me but behind the line I am standing in? Please advise.


A: We will not say that the namaaz is invalid, but this is not the appropriate way to stand.

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