Once, I heard the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) of the Masjid through microphones saying: Salaah is interrupted by three: A woman, a black dog, and a donkey. I do not know the degree of the validity of this Hadeeth. How can a woman be associated with a donkey or a dog? Is she Najaasah (ritually impure)? Please advise us, may Allaah reward you best!
