Shafi'i Fiqh

Is Women`s Following an Imam Invalidated by the Malfunctioning of Speakers in their Musala?

We live in Australia and our mosque is made of adjacent houses where the Imam leads the prayer from the first house (Main mosque). A week ago, the Imam forgot to turn the microphone on and so the women couldn`t hear him. Therefore, they decided to make a congregation of their own. One of them said that it isn`t permissible to have two congregations at the same time, but another replied that they can`t follow the Imam because they can`t hear him. Is the prayer of those women valid? Kindly clarify with special reference to the Shafie position.

Hanafi Fiqh

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) with Women, Children, and Orphans

I want to prepare a concise piece of literature for our annual” Mawlid for the women”, on the life of the Prophet(saw) and his relation to females of the family and the non-family members.I wish to highlight the beauty of his(saw) character and his immense campassion to those weak elements of society (including oorphans) and his advocation to their good treatment and the giving of their rights.

Many in my community only contemplate on his (saw) life in the capacity of a Messenger of Allah(swt) and have scant knowledge of his character in the capacity of an intimate campanion, a loving father and an advocater of the rights of the oppressed and vulnerable.
