Concentrating in Salah

Question

Is this authentic?

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reported, “I asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) about turning and looking here and there in Salah. He replied: ‘It is what Shaytan steals from your prayer.”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 751 and 3291)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
