Where Should The Worshiper Look When Performing Ruku`, Sujud and Tashahhud

April 15, 2012

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

Q 9: A worshiper, while in the posture of standing during Salah (Prayer), should look at the spot of Sujud (prostration). Where should the worshiper look when performing Ruku` (bowing), Sujud and Tashahhud (testification recited in the sitting position in the second/ last unit of Prayer)?

A: During Ruku`, the worshiper should also look at the spot of Sujud, whereas during Tashahhud they should look at their pointing (index) finger. During Sujud, they should look at the place where their eyes meet the ground.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
