Answer


Is prayer of men and women same or there is some difference as some people said that there is no difference between men and women prayer and they quote the hadith of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) that "Pray as You Have Seen Me(S.A.W.) Pray". So this makes me confuse so please tell me about this and also told me about the correct and most authentic way of offering each and every step of prayer?

There are some differences of method of Salah between men and women. These differences are also based on the Hadith of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam and the practice of Sahabah (noble companions).
A detailed method of Salah for women with differences can be accessed from the website below.


A brief answer to the objection of the Hadith of the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam "Pray as you see me praying" is  that this Hadith primarily addresses Muslim men. The general rule is also that the method of Salah is same for men and women except where a difference has been pointed out from the Hadith of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam or practice of Sahabah.
And Allah knows best.
