  1. Can a woman lead dua in presence of her husband and other males of the family?

    Please advise.

    • salman, there is no indication that she is leading the dua'. And if she were, I do not know of any prohibition against such. In some masjids women have given the Friday khutbah for men and women. A woman was the president of ISNA until recently (Ingrid Mattson). Woman ulemaa' have existed throughout the history of the Ummah, going back to Aishah bint Abi Bakr (RA).
