Passing in front of a Musalli

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

Answer:

If someone passes in front of you whilst you are engaged in Salaat, your Salaat does not break. However, as far as possible one should not perform Salaat at a transit place. And if the only place available is a thoroughfare 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.
