Is it allowed to pray with an open-fire/gas fire or a large mirror in front of you?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamualikum Mufti saheb,
Is it permissible to pray in Salaat if there is:
1. an open-fire/gas fire in front of you?
2. a large mirror in front of you?


Answer

Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

1. If the fire is placed before the person as an article of worship or to show any form of respect then it is Haram and disbelief, and if kept merely to heat up the place or room then there is no harm and Salah will be permissible. (Hidaya)

2. It is permissible.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
