Can a Woman Administer Shahada to a New Muslim?

Can a Woman Administer Shahada to a New Muslim?Q: A non-Muslim young boy started working for a Muslim family as domestic servant.  Later he decided to accept Islam and take Shahada. As they live in a remote town where no male was available, the lady of the house administered the Shahada.

She is helping him memorize the verses and whenever he offers Salah, she helps him. Under the circumstances, has she done the right thing?

A: Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

 

It is permissible for a female to make a male take the Shahaada. Under the circumstances, the lady has done the correct thing. She could continue to educate the new Muslim with regards to Salah and other aspects of Deen. However, she should observe the Shariah laws of Hijab whilst doing so.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
