597: Ja'mmaa'a Prayer with a man and a woman only


Can a muslim one man and one woman perform janaat together?

Yes, it is permissible for one man to pray jamaa'ah (in congregation) with one woman (say his wife). She would stand behind him. (Note from the translator: It should be understood that this would not substitute the man praying jamaa'ah in the mosque whenever applicable.)

wallaahu a'lam.
