Q. Can a woman perform Janaazah Salaah in the Haram behind the Imaam? I see many South African women not performing Janaazah Salaah behind the Imaam in the Haram.
A. There is no obligation on women to perform Salaah in the Haram. However, in an event of women being present in the Haram at the time of Salaah or Janaazah Salaah, they may join and follow the Imaam of the Haram for Salaah and Janaazah Salaah. (Al-Muheetul-Burhaani 2/197)
