1. I read in the Islam (magazine) a question that the Imam of Makkah does not keep Niyyath for the Namaz of ladies behind him and in reply the Moulana Sahib had said yes and it was so. Sir is it possible that the Imaam of Ka'ba does not keep Niyyath for the ladies who perform Namaz behind him while a large number of females do participate in every Namaz in Ka'ba. Feeling so much uneasy since I do not know whether this is correct or not. Please be kind enough to clarifiy the matter. May Allah reward you.
2. Assalamu Alaikum!
Sir I had enquired you about making videos and getting videos made, as to whether they were permissible or impermissible whereas Mufthi Munib ur Rahman Sahib had declared them as permissible? Jazakumullah Khaira.
Imams of the Haramain are connected to the Maslak of Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal Rahmathullahi Alaihi and according to them it is not necessary to have special Intention (Niyyath) as to leading the Salath for females but a general intention is sufficient. And among our Imams of Ahnaf's too, one view is just the same. Therefore the Salath performed by the females following them are correct although the view according to the judicial decree is that repetition is better and excellent and,it should be the way. Taking photos of animated beings, and, making videos or getting videos made on them, are prohibited and Haram according to the Shari'a and abstention from which, is equally essential for all, the common and the privileged.
