The Place of Looking in Rukoo – Shaykh al-Albaani

We don’t have to look at a certain spot during rukoo`

Q: “Where does the one praying look during rukoo` (bowing)?”

Shaikh al-Albaani:

He is not obliged to look at a certain spot like he should when he is standing and when he is sitting for the tashahhud. So when he is standing, he looks at the place of his prostration; and when he is sitting during the tashahhud, he looks at his (right index) finger. But during rukoo`, there isn’t a specific spot toward which we were commanded to look, so the matter is unrestricted.”
