    You are probably reading Sheikh Albani sifat solat nabi . Sutrah is the thing you have in front of you when you pray so that people can walk in front of you .


    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When any one of you prays, let him place a sutrah for his prayer, even if it is an arrow.” Narrated by Ahmad, 14916; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 2783



    There is a difference opinion on this by Imam ibn hajar asqalani and Sheikh Uthaymeen differing with Sheikh Albani


    Sheikh Albani opinion:

    The sutrah should be approximately a handspan or two above the ground, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When one of you places in front of him something such as the stick on the end of a saddle, he should pray and not worry about anyone who passes in front of that.” This hadeeth indicates that a line on the ground is not sufficient, and the hadeeth narrated concerning that is da’eef (weak).



    Imam ibn Hajar Asqalani opinion:
    The Hadith about line is NOT da'eef (weak) according to Imam Ibnul-Haj'ar Al-Asqalani (RA).

    Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 13/326.

    My advice for you sister:

    Keep your mind open to other fiqh and dont taksoob or blindly follow ( taqlid) what is in the Sheikh Albani book .

    I watch the video of someone teaching people how to pray the prophet way with reference from Sheikh Albani's book . I thought i love it. It is in malay language.
    May god grant Sheikh Albani the highest place in heaven
