A woman invalidating a woman’s prayer


Question #7: “The woman who has reached puberty invalidates the prayer by her passing in front of the one praying, so does she invalidate the prayer of a woman?”

Shaykh al-Albānī answers:

“Yes, the woman invalidates the prayer of another woman (if she passes in front of her), with the condition mentioned in some established narrations: if she has reached puberty. And there is no difference in Islamically legislated rulings between men and women, except that which came in text excluding women from the men; and there is no (such) text here. Rather the text is general: the woman (who has reached puberty), the donkey and the black dog invalidate the prayer of one of you when they pass in front of him, if there isn’t something like the rear part of a camel saddle in front of him.1 So there is no difference in the ruling.”

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
