Are a man and his wife allowed to pray together. I've heard that the woman has to pray behind him, but how far back does she have to be?

Yes, of course.
The husband would stand in front as an Imaam and lead the prayer and the wife would stand behind him, leaving enough room for her to do Sajadah! (Ahsanul Fatawa)

Imam Abu Dawood (Alayhi Rahmah) reports that the Holy Prophet, Hadhrat Muhammad-ur Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “Whoever wakes up during the night and wakes up his wife both of them praytwo Raka'ah prayer togther; their names will be written among ‘those men and women who remembered Allah (Taa'la) most.’


If TWO men prayed together in Jama’ah, then one of them will be the Imaam whilst the other person would stand one step behind him to the right of the Imaam.

Wassalaam,

Where should a woman stand when she prays in jamaa’ah with her husband?

Question:
i have recently got married alhumdulillah and could you tell me can one pray jamat with his wife and if so how?

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible for a man to lead his wife in prayer, and the woman should stand behind the man, because it is not permissible for her to stand with him, because when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) led Anas and the orphan in prayer, he made Umm Sulaym – who was the mother of Anas – stand behind them.
It is also indicated by the report narrated from Anas ibn Maalik, that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) led him and his mother or maternal aunt in prayer. He said, “He made me stand to his right and he made the woman stand behind us.” (narrated by Muslim, al-Masaajid wa Mawaadi’ al-Salaah, 1056).

Al-Kaasaani said: If there is a woman praying with the imaam, he should make her stand behind him.
Ibn Rushd al-Hafeed said: there is no dispute concerning the fact that a lone woman may pray behind the imaam and that if there is also a man present, the man should pray beside the imaam and the woman should pray behind him.

What if it's just the husband and wife alone on their room?

Stop being foolish, do not mock the deen. You should repent to Allah(swt).

the wife should always be behind, i dont know of the minimum distance

i have heard that there are certain madh'habs where men do not lead their wives in salat, i think its hanafis, but i am not sure

Nope Hanafis can lead their wives in salah, I don't think any madhab has this restriction?

ze,

i know brothers who have NEVER lead their wives in salat, they say according to their madhhab, they are not to

they are mostly desis, and i thought that meant hanafi

i may be wrong

It is allowed according to HANAFIS!

Whenever i've seen this, the woman stands a step behind her husband. She isn't directly behind him either - but slightly to his left or right.

Yep. Any situation where there are male and female family members its usually men then women.

One man leads, the other men stand behind him with the women behind them.

That is so strange!? If the husband won't lead them, then what chance does a complete stranger have (albeit he is the imam of the masjid or something!)

sister here one time started a thread on it, and i have known brothers who do not lead their family in salat at home

i thought it was the strangest thing i heard, but i have heard it more than once from various people

Families, husband and wife, should always pray together. There should be no question as to whether or not a husband and wife should or can pray together. It's sad that people have to even question it.

I thought Islam wasn't supposed to be so difficult.

that's just crazy...my dad makes us (the whole family) pray jamaah behind him especially for maghrib, ishaa and fajr prayers (convenient times where the whole family is around)...my dad even said it's haraam if u are able to pray in congregation and u refuse to do it to pray alone...congregational prayers are beautiful and strengthen the family unit :)
i'd do the same thing when i have my own family someday inshaallah
