Putting a Sutrah (barrier placed in front of a person praying) is a necessity for both men and women. It is impermissible for anyone to pass in front of a person offering Salah, or between them and their Sutrah, whether the person praying is a man or a woman, and whether the passing person is a man or woman. But, if the passing person is a woman, her passage would interrupt the Salah of the person she passes in front of, or between them and their Sutrah, except in Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah) where she would be excused for the difficulty of preventing that from taking place. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says: So keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him as much as you can and ...and He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
Al-Bukhari and Muslim related on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Allah (Exalted be He) says: 'The son of Adam hurts Me by cursing time, as I am Time. I turn around the night and day.' In another narration, Do not curse time, as Allah is Time.
The prayer makes the intention in his heart to offer prayer, but it is not permissible to say this intention out loud, because that is an innovation: The Prophet (peace be upon him) has said that actions are by their intention, and there is but for each man that which he has intended.[ Source: Agreed upon.]
