Praying Behind A Sutrah

Shaykh Muqbil bin Haadi al Waadi’ee رحمه الله

Q: Is the Sutrah (barrier) a necessity during the prayer, and what is the evidence?

A: That which is apparent is that the Sutrah is a must, because the Messenger (صلى الله عليه و على آله و سلم) said:

‘When one of you prays toward a Sutrah he should keep close to it’ [Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah]

And the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و على آله و سلم) would place a spear before him if he intended to pray, and the aid of Allah is sought.
