AstaghfirAllah,

Computer Animated, it’s obviously photoshopped or the Muslims forgot how to form a single row behind her. She must be leading the obligatory congregational Valentine’s Day prayer? 

No, it’s not edited. There are recorded videos of it.

In communities in China (not sure if they are Uyghur or Chinese) you will find female Imams leading prayer, but it is only a female congregation. Strange how the practice continues, but further west along the Silk Route, zilch. Or maybe it isn't strange, maybe other cultures had an influence, while the Chinese Muslims remained uninfluenced. Nothing to do with the question, just thought I'd throw it out there.

It's easy when they entirely disregard the Old Testament

They don't disregard the entirety, my experience going to holy mass was that the Book of Isaiah gets a lot of attention, some of the Psalms and anything that apparently predicted Jesus, peace be upon him. The more Jewish, more conservative stuff, these are about as forsaken as the cushions on the pews.

Was going to mention this too. It certainly is intetesting and I suppose the Great Firewall of China kept stricter interpretations of Islam at bay over the years.

I"m male I just wanted to know if shiism allows female Imams or women to lead men in prayer.

No.

When Muslims women, especially young Shia (women) recognise the importance of Hijab and I am not talking about those colorful hijabs, here!

They don't have to preach or say anything and just walk. While knowing or unknowingly, they are walking while holding the banner of Islam. In a quiet, modest manner, they are already leaders!

It is as if they are saying "Look at me, I am a Muslim, but you have not heard my voice, because I am modest!
