Question

What is the ruling on making salat in a room with mirrors?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

If a person prays with a mirror in front of him, his prayer is valid even if he is facing it and can see himself in it. But he has to lower his gaze and not look at it. He should keep away from it and from everything that may distract him during his prayer.
