الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

If the masjid is nearby, then both of you brothers should pray with the jamā’ah at the masjid, as praying with the jamā’ah is wājib. If the masjid is not nearby or there is some other valid obstacle, then it is better to prayer with the jamā’ah at home, rather than praying alone. The method is as follows: you should stand your brother to the right of and slightly behind yourself, and stand your sisters in the row behind.
