In Salah, where should the hermaphrodites stand and what is the ruling for them?



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




The ruling of the sequence of the lines in congregation salah is that the men should form the first row or rows, then the boys, followed by the hermaphrodites. Thereafter the females form the last row. (Nurul Idah p.79, extracted from Maraqi al Fallah, page 308)


From the above text we can derive that in congregational prayer, the hermaphrodites stand behind the men and children but in front of the women.



Only Allah Knows Best
