Wall In Front Of The Imaam Sufficing As A Sutrah For The Muqtadis


Will the wall in front of the Imam in a Masjid be regarded as a Sutrah for the Muqtadees?


The wall in a Masjid in front the Imaam will suffice as a Sutrah for the Muqtadis. Any person wishing to pass by the Muqtadis will have to do so beyond the Sutrah, which is in this instance, the wall of the Masjid.
