Question:What is the ruling on passing directly in front of a worshipper in prayer in the Sacred House ( in Makkah ), and is the worshipper allowed to prevent the one who tries to pass in front of him? Answer:
There is no sin in this, and it is not allowed for someone who is in the Sacred House - I mean the Sacred Mosque- to prevent someone passing in front of him, because of the narrations which prove the righteous Salaf, including Az-Zubair (Radhi Allahu Anhu), did not prevent those making Tawaf or others from passing in front of them, and because the Sacred Mosque is a place where one expects crowding and difficulty in preventing anyone passing in front of a worshipper it is obligatory to be forbearing and tolerant in this manner.
