Assalaamu `alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Does anyone have any daleel with regards to where the sight should be during Rukoo`? I read somewhere that it should be between the feet when you are in Rukoo`, so I am unsure at the moment. Jazaakumullaahu khairan.

Bismillaah

Taken from the book: "The Clarified Ruling Of Mistakes Done In Salaah" By: Mashhoor Hassan Al-Salmaan (Hafidhahullah)


Raising one`s eyesight up wards or else where except
the place of prostration:


One of muslims` mistakes when doing Salaat is raising one`s eye
sight towards the sky, the Imaam, to the left or the right, the thing
which paves the way for waswasah and Sahwu to take place. A
muslim is ordered [by the prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam)] to lower his/her gaze downwards to the prostration spot,(2) except in Tashahhud in which case one`s eye sight should be directed to one`s [right] index finger only. It was affirmed that the prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) never moved his eye sight beyond his index finger.(3)


Al-`Izz Ibn Abdis Salaam was asked about those who believe
that`the one doing Salaat should direct his eye sight toward his feet
when doing Rukoo' , to his nose when doing Sujood and to his lap in
the sitting posture`, is their opinion supported by any hadeeth,`Athar
or even a rationale??

He answered [as reported] in his Fataawaa (p. 68):`This is not
true; their opinion is not based on any kind of evidence whether
from the Qur`aan or Sunnah. Allaah (Azza Wa Jall) knows best`.
[Proofs from the Sunnah]:

(1)`Aishah said:`I asked the prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) about the Hukm of looking here and there in Salaat`. He (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) said:`This is the portion which Shaitaan steals from one`s Salaat`.(4)

(2)`Anas (RadhiAllahu Anhu) said: the prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) said:`what is the matter with those who raise their eyesight towards the sky in their Salaat`, then he (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) spoke angrily saying:`Unless they stop doing such an act, their eyesight will be taken away form them`.(5)

(3) Aboo Hurairah (RadhiAllahu Anhu) said: The prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) said:`Unless those who raise their eyesights towards the sky when reciting Dużaa in their Salaat stop doing such a thing, their eye sight will be taken away from them`.(6)

(4) Jaabir Ibn Samurah (RadhiAllahu Anhu) said: The prophet (salallahu`alayhe wasallam) said:`Unless
those raising their eye sights in Salaat towards the sky stop doing
such an act, their eye sights will never be returned back to
them`.(7)

The aforementioned ahaadeeth state clearly the grave threat
addressed against those who raise their eye sights towards the sky
in Salaat; accordingly, all the`Ulamah agreed on the prohibition of
such an act.(8)


It is also detested for a muslim to look here and there in Salaat
for no need,(5) as stated in the first hadeeth, for this is from Shaitaan
who causes a muslim to be distracted form his Salaat. Such an act
was refered to [in the hadeeth] as `stealing` for Shaitaan snaps a
portion of a muslim`s Salaat so easily with out facing any sign of
defense form the part of the prayer. When a muslim looks here and
there in his Salaat, Shaitaan seizes this chance at once and steals
some of the muslim`s attention lest he be fully given to his Rabb.(9)


Such an act does not, however, nullify one`s Salaat except when
one turns his back to the Qiblah, as Ibn Abdil Barr stated; he said:
żThe Jumhoor agreed that looking here and there does not render
one`s Salaat null and void provided that it is slight`.


It is also detested for a muslim to perform his Salaat towards that
which may distract one`s attention from Salaat or in a place full of
pictures or even on a carpet attractively decorated, as was
mentioned previously. This all distracts a muslim`s attention from
being fully given to Salaat or fully directed towards the Qiblah.
