All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

If a praying person needs to spit while performing the prayer, he should not break his prayer, rather he is permitted to spit while performing his prayer; this does not invalidate his prayer. The evidence about this is the Prophetic narration in which the Prophet said: ''Whenever anyone of you stands to perform the prayer, he should not spit in front of him as he is silently invoking his Lord during his prayer, and he should not spit to his right hand side as there is an angel on his right hand side, rather he should spit to his left hand side or under his feet so that he would scrape it off with his feet [bury it].'' [Al-Bukhari].
