Can we perform salah by standing against someone’s face? At work, if there is no other place to perform salah, is it makruh to perform salah by standing against someone’s face? If I put a chair between us, can this eliminate the problem?

Dear Brother / Sister,
It is not makruh to perform salah in front of a person who has turned his back. There is no objection at all to performing salah in front of a person who has turned his back. However, it is makruh to perform salah facing someone’s face and sleeping people.
For this reason, if someone –who is on the floor or on the sofa – turns his/her face to the person performing salah, the salah is not invalidated, but this is makruh; if he/she turns his/her back, this is not makruh.
If someone performs salah against another’s face due to a necessity, he/she can perform it by putting something like a chair between them. Thus, it does not become makruh.
