where to look during different positions in salah?


Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, "What is wrong with those people who look towards the sky during the prayer?" His talk grew stern while delivering this speech and he said, "They should stop (looking towards the sky during the prayer); otherwise their eye-sight would be taken away." SAHIH AL_BUKHARI [Book 1 : Volume 12 : Hadith 717]

Narrated 'Aisha: I asked Allah's Apostle about looking hither and thither in prayer. He replied, "It is a way of stealing by which Satan takes away (a portion) from the prayer of a person." SAHIH AL_BUKHARI [Book 1 : Volume 12 : Hadith 718]

Thus from the above guidance of our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh) we should abstain from seeing here or there while offering salah. The sprit of the salah is that we surrender our body, soul, mind & every organ in front of our lord.

Imam malik is of the opinion that the believer in prayer should look in the direction of qaba (qibla), while imam shafi & imam abu -hanifa( may Allah be pleased with them) are of the opinion that the believer should point his eyes where they naturally fall during the different positions while offering salah.

Thus according to this opinion:

1. While in standing position our eyes should focus on position where we prostrate.

2. While in ruku our eyes should be on the foot (where they naturally fall).

3. while in tashud our eyes naturally fall on the lap.

And this second opinion is supported by majority of the scholars. And Allah alone knows the best.
