Please note, this first response in not from a Hanafi source.

Quote:
Question
What is the ruling on placing an incense-burner in front of people who are praying in the mosque?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing wrong with that, and that does not come under what some fuqaha’ have mentioned about it being makrooh to pray facing fire. For those who say that it is makrooh to pray facing fire give the reason that that is akin to the actions of the Magians (Zoroastrians) who worship fire, but the Magians do not worship fire in this manner, so there is nothing wrong with putting the incense burner in front of a person who is praying. There is also nothing wrong with putting electrical heaters in front of a person who is praying, especially if that object is put in front of the members of the congregation only and not in front of the imaam.

According to the Shia, it is Makrooh to do so. Please be patient whilst we try and locate a precise ruling from the Hanafi school of thought.

Since the question is specific to a (Gas Fire) Heater, it may need a specific response as there is a huge difference in a heater and a fire. Majority of older houses (in the UK) have gas fires fitted in the middle of the room where people would not have much choice but to face the heater in order to face the Qibla
