When a couple gets married and they pray 2 rakaats Salah together, does the wife stand to the right of the husband or directly behind him?



بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




It is valid for the wife to stand to the right of the husband, as long as his heel is in front of hers. However, it is best for her to stand directly behind him.[1]
