What Is the Khulasa of the Sutra Masala?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

What is the khulasa of the sutra masala

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


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
