Men and women praying in congregation together?

September 12, 2016, 03:17:09 am N. Truth Seeker: Wa salam sisters. So kind of u to remember. Alhumdulilah that Allah gave us another chance to live thru the blessed month of Zil Hajj.  Was a busy time for all of my family.
September 11, 2016, 08:26:43 am Zeynab: Wa'salaam my dear Sis Heba Smiley  Yes, Alhumdulilah, the 10 days of this blessed month went well by the Grace & Mercy of Allah. I wish the same for all.
September 11, 2016, 02:20:02 am Heba E. Husseyn: Salam my dear MV team and other sis and bros.  I pray the first 10 days of the bless month of Zil Hajj has passed well for all.  Hajj culminates in about 2 days. InshAllah.
August 22, 2016, 09:50:39 pm Zeynab: Wa'salam.  Thanks brother Smiley  Sis Heba helped me a lot too.
August 22, 2016, 09:33:50 pm N. Truth Seeker: Salam all.  MV Pinterest Boards are super, Alhumdulilah.
June 11, 2016, 06:35:43 am Zeynab: u r absolutely right sis Ruhi.
June 11, 2016, 06:32:29 am Ruhi_Rose: I came across a pinterest page on the Quran which says "The Quran is the central religious text of Islam."  Let me put it this way: Quran is the ONLYText of Islam. If u r following the Quran, u don't need anything else.
June 06, 2016, 06:20:53 am Zeynab: Ramadan Kareem to all.

At family get togethers the men pray at the front and the women at the back.  I don't know if this is the correct/Quranic way, but it seems to be the done method of combined congregational prayer.
Is this allowed?
What is the Quranic way for congregational prayer?

Walaikum Salam. Details on this aspect aren't specified in the Quran but we can definitely take the guidelines from the Quran.  That involves, never forgetting the rules of decency and respect in the case of both genders for each other.  No lewdness, no lewd gestures, no harassment and no impertinence .. just as Allah has disallowed all of this during Hajj.  Of course the Quran make is abundantly clear that such acts/gestures are bad at all times but one needs to be especially aware during worship. 

The Quran says nothing to indicate nor hint that mixed congregational prayers aren't allowed.  However, for the security & peace of mind of women, it's certainly advisable to group the two genders separately in a mixed congregation.  Either the women's group can stand for prayer beside the men's group or behind makes no difference.  The latter isn't a reference of women being less important or inferior.  It's only for the purpose of guarding the modesty of females from possible gazers during ruku and sajood.  Not to mention, any man who comes for salat with such intentions is the lowest of sub-humans.  Unfortunately such folks do exist and Allah Almighty will definitely deal with them either in this world or in the next for sure.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.  Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.  Just walk beside me and be a friend.
