Walking in front of the person performing Salaah


1. If a person walks directly in front of you, within a arms reach, in a masjid kabeer, should you restart the Salaah?

2. What about a small masjid?

3. Will the ruling change if the person was walking from in front, stepped directly onto your sajdah spot, walked towards you then pushed through touching your shoulders, but technically didn't cross in front from one side to the other?


1. No

2. No

3. The Salaah will not break.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
