In mosque,I see most people while praying in Qiyam position they look either sides or straight. I want to know what is the right position?

La ilaha illa LLAAH (There is no God worthy of Worship except ALLAAH)

The true position for this thing is to look at “Place of Prostration” which we came to know from sahih hadith which InshaALLAAH I will list it below

(1) narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) entered the Ka’bah andHHIS GAZE DID NOT GO BEYOND THE SITE OF HIS PROSTRATION UNTIL HE CAME OUT.”Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Sifat Salaah al-Nabi (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

Reference : Ibn Hibbaan 4/332 and al-Haakim 1/625

(2) a) – It was narrated that Abu Qalaabah said: I asked Muslim ibn Yassaar where should my gaze fall whilst I am praying? He said: If it falls where you prostrate, that is good. 

b)– It was narrated that Ibraaheem al-Nakha’i used to like for the worshipper not to let his gaze wander beyond the place of prostration. 

c) – It was narrated that Ibn Sireen used to like for a man to focus his gaze on the place of prostration. 

Reference : Musannaf ‘Abd al-Razzaaq, 2/163 

Thus from above saheeh ahadith it is clear that place of looking during Qiyam, not only Qiyam infact throughout the prayer is “place of prostration” 


ALLAAH knows best
