Walking in front of a musallee in a big jamaat khana

Q: I understand that if a person is in a Musjid-e-Kabeer, he may pass in front of a musallee, provided there is one saff or more between him and the musallee.

1. Does this rule also apply to a jamaat khana or a musalla that is equal in size to a Musjid-e-Kabeer or larger than it?

2. Does this rule apply in the sehn that is joined to the Musjid-e-Kabeer but is not regarded as part of the musjid?

A:

1. Yes.

2. Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
