Closing your eyes to pray

Home / Pillars of Islam / Closing your eyes to pray


I close my eyes while praying because i concentrate better. Does this nullify my prayer?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

It does not nullify the prayer but this is not the way of the Prophet, peace be upon him. Accordingly start forcing yourself to open your eyes and you will get used to it day by day. You need to stop closing your eyes as the Scholars say this is makruh.
