Question: A child pulled his mother's Burqa in Salaah, does this break the Salaah?

Answer: In Salaah, a lady is required to cover her whole body except the hands, feet, and the face. 

Keeping that in mind, if when the child pulled the Burqa, only a few strands of hair became exposed, the validity of the Salaah will not  affected.

If quarter of the lady's head or the hair that hangs from her head became exposed, for less than the duration of three Tasbeehs and she quickly covered it up, Salaah will be valid. 

However, if the exposure continued  up to the duration of three Tasbeehs, then Salaah will become invalid.

أذا انكشف ربع عضو اقل من قدر أداء ركن فلا يفسد اتفاقا ، لان الانكشاف الكثير من الزمان القليل عفو كالانكشاف القليل في الزمن الكثير(رد المحتار ج2ص86)

And Allah Knows Best
