Passing in front of a Musalli

Q. I want to know that if someone passes in front of me while I’m reading my Namaaz, does that break my Salaah?

A. If someone passes in front of you whilst you are engaged in Salaat, your Salaat does not break. When performing Salaat at a place where others pass in front of, then place an object of approximately a shoulder’s-length height just in front of your place of Sujood. This is called a sutrah. Passers-by can then walk freely in front of you , beyond the sutrah.
