Is there a Hadith in which Ummu Waraqa lead both men and women in prayer?
I have heard that Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) appointed her to lead a group of men and women in prayer. The example of Ummu Waraqah is based on a hadith found to be solid, transmitted through Ibn Sa’d al-Baghdadi
The Hadith that is cited in your question appears in the following Hadith sources:
None of the above sources mention Sayyidatuna Ummu Waraqah (radiyallahu’anha) leading men in the salah.
Rather, the version in last source quoted above; Sunan Daraqutni clearly states that she led the women of her household in the salah!
Furthermore, according to all the scholars of Islam (ijma’) a woman is not allowed to lead men in salah.
