Another domino falls
More good news on the movement for women-led mixed-gender prayers! Tahar Mahdi, a France based Muslim scholar and permanent member of the European Council on Fatwa and Research (led by the (in)famous Yusuf al-Qardawi) has come out on his website supporting the theological reasoning behind and the permisibility of women leading mixed prayers. The dominoes continue to fall!!
