Q: My question regarding the small distance which is left between muqtadis during Salaah due to pillar between the saff whether we should leave the gap or stand there which leads to disturbing the straightness of the saff?
A: Don’t worry about the pillars. You may just continue the saff after the pillar.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
