Abul-Juhaim `Abdullah bin Al-Harith (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said, "
If the person who passes in front of a praying person, realizes the enormity of the sinfulness of this
act, it will have been better for him to wait forty than to pass in front of him
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
[The narrator was not sure whether the Prophet (PBUH) said forty days, months or years.]
We learn from this Hadith that it is a great sin to pass before a person who is offering Salat. People
should also take care that they do not offer Salat without placing a Sutrah in front of them. A Sutrah refers to
anything that a person sets up in front of him; this could be a stick, another person praying in front of him or even a
line which he can draw on the ground. The distance between the person offering his Salat and the Sutrah should not
be more than approximately one meter and a half. If the distance is longer than this, then it is not unlawful to pass
before someone offering Salat.
