Should she pray behind her husband who is clean-shaven and lets his garment hang down below his ankles?

Question

Is it better for a woman to pray alone, or behind her husband who is clean-shaven and lets his garment hang down below his ankles?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered asfollows:

We think that it is better for her to pray alone. The basic principle is that a faasiq (rebellious evildoer) should not lead others in prayer, and it is makrooh to pray behind him. And Allaah knows best.
