    Things
    Which Are Not Preferred In The Prayer

     

    • Turning of the eyes up. The Prophet (peace be upon him)
      strongly admonished against this as can be noted from the following
      saying: “What is the matter with the people who raise their eyes
      towards the sky while praying? They shall have to refrain from this or
      else they will lose their eyesight”
      (Reported by Imam Bukhari).
      It is also disliked to look right and left and the Prophet (peace be
      upon him) in this regard says: “It is a deception with which
      Satan deceives the servant while in prayer”
      (Reported by Imam
      Bukhari). The person while praying is required to direct his eyes at
      the point of prostration.
    • Closing the eyes in the course of the prayer.
    • Placing the hands above the kidneys or on the waist. Hands
      should be placed over the chest.
    • Wiping the earth (where to prostrate) more than once to
      remove pebbles on it.
    • Reading of the Holy Qur'an, while in Rukuu and in Sujuud
      positions.
    • Making unnecessary movements in the course of the prayer such
      as touching the chin (beard) or fidgeting the fingertips or mending up
      the clothes e. g. the head turban etc.
    • Entering to prayer, while food has been served to the person
      before the prayer or while badly in need of passing excrement and / or
      urine. The Prophet (peace be upon him) in this regard says:
      “Prayer is not valid when food has been served and when a person is in
      need of relieving himself of excrement and/or urine”
      (Reported
      by Imam Muslim).
    • It is prohibited for someone in a congregational prayer to
      raise the head from Rukuu and Sujuud positions ahead of the Imam. The
      Prophet (peace be upon him) strongly warned persons doing this as can
      be noted from the following saying: “Doesn't the person who
      raises up his head before the Imam fear that Allah will turn his head
      to that of a donkey or make his face look like a donkey”

      (Reported by Imam Bukhari).
