Following an Imam who is leading

Q 16: We want to ask about the Salah (Prayer) of a woman at home following the radio or television if she hears the recitation and the Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]") of the Imam, whether it is a Fard (obligatory) or a Nafilah (supererogatory) Salah? What is the situation when it is broadcast from the country she is in or from a distant place, such as Riyadh when she lives in Ayn Dar, around 350 km away? Please advise us.

A: This is not permissible, whether the Salah is Fard or Nafilah, even if the woman can hear the recitation and Takbir of the Imam.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
