Women offering Salah in congregation and being led by one of them

Q 4: We are a group of women, and by Allah's Grace, I have memorized some Surahs of the Qur'an. Is it permissible for me to lead a group of women in Salah, as I have read that this is impermissible? (Part No. 6; Page No. 262


A: It is permissible for a woman to lead other women in Congregational Prayer. However, this should be done without pronouncing the Adhan (call for Prayer) or Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) as this is reserved for men. A female Imam should stand in the middle of the first row.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
