Is it permissible for husband and wife to pray in Jamaat? If so, do both get additional reward than praying individually?Can the wife provide "luqma"


Not sure how one would translate "luqma" into English.


It is preferable for a female to perform her Salaat individually. However,
if she performs Salaat with her husband, she should stand completely behind
him without any limb of hers being in line with the husband. The wife may
give Luqma (correction) to the husband only if she joins him in Salaat.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
