Question:

 

What is the khulasa of the sutra masala

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

The Sutrah is that which is used as a barrier before one praying for others to walk by.

 

The conditions of Sutrah are the following:

⦁ It should be one arm’s length
⦁ Be as thick as a finger
⦁ It should be placed and not vertical or horizontal (1)

 

The above requirements are needed for an object to be considered eligible to serve the purpose of a Sutrah. Otherwise, the item will not be of use and anyone walking past a musalli will be passing before their prayer.

 

 

Only Allah knows best

بیان لاقلها و الظاهر ان المراد به ذراع اليد..(دون (قوله قدر ذراع) ثلاثة اذرع).. السنة ان لا يزيد ما بينها عل ثلاثة اذرع غلظه اصبع قوله و لا يكفي الوضع أي وضع السترة على الارض اذا لم يمكن غرزها و قیل یکفی ای کل من الوضع و الخط..ثم قيل يضعه طولا لا عرضا على مثال الغرز و يسن الخط
