Where should the worshipper look when he does sujood and says the tashahhud?

Question

The worshipper looks at the place of his sujood whilst he is standing during the prayer. Where should he look when he is doing rukoo’ and sujood, and reciting the tashhahud?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

When doing rukoo’, the worshipper should also look at the place of his sujood. When he is reciting the tashahhud, he should look at the finger with which he is pointing. When he is doing sujood he should look at the ground directly beneath his eyes.

 And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
