Consider the scenario: I am sitting on my bed in a room. Now some person enters the room and starts praying namaz (salah) on the floor. His position while praying is such that he is facing me. Should I get aside because I am like in front of a person praying namaz?

Well done, you inquired about a question (issue) which could happen plenty of times. So it doesn't look to be counted as the items which invalidate the saying prayer (salah), and actually it could be the duty of the person who intends to say prayers to observe the issue and attempt not to stand in front of you who you were there since before. But on the other hand, we can say that perhaps it could be considered as a positive practice for you to move a little in order to changing your situation in front of him as holding more respect to Allah.


I think this is not Wajib for you to move from your place, because he himself should pay attention to his environment to select a better place for his praying.


Well, as far as I am concerned it will be the best to move out of the way. But if you are unable to do so then you might put an object in between you and him. But I you should try to move out of the way and try not to disturb them.

    This is a nice response. I do agree with you. Of course I assume this is not obligatory for you to move, but it is better if you change your place for the sake of Allah respect. Jan 12, 2015 at 11:31
