Britain’s first female-led mosque will not segregate men & women

Source: RT
Female Muslims from the North of England plan to launch a mosque in Bradford open to all, but the first to be led entirely by women, it has been announced.

Bana Gora and Nabelah Hafeez, who both work for the Muslim Women’s Council in Bradford, told the Independent they wanted to create a place where women could bring their families to worship without having to pray in a different room.

In mosques women are often obliged to worship in a separate space, sometimes away from the main mosque completely.

  1. women are allowed to lead other women only in prayer in Islamic Fiqh.

    But women are not allowed to lead men in Salah; a position agreed upon by the four main madhabs.
