Thinking of worldly matters during Salah

Q: Sometimes I am distracted by worldly matters while offering Salah (Prayer). Should I repeat it? (Part No. 5; Page No. 381

A: A Muslim should offer Salah with a submissive heart, and contemplate the Ayahs (Qur'anic verses) and the Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) they recite while feeling Khushu` (the heart being submissively attuned to the act of worship). Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says: Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their Salât (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness. If a worshipper becomes occupied with an idea during Salah, they should turn this idea away, and there is no harm on them. They do not have to repeat Salah, but they should perform Ruku` (bowing) and Sujud (prostration) quietly, and rest between the two Sujuds until all limbs return to their normal position. They should also keep up the Shar`y (Islamically lawful) Dhikr and Du`a' (supplication) in Sujud, for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "So far as Ruk'u is concerned, extol in it the Great and Glorious Lord, while in Sujud be earnest in Du`a', for it is fitting that your Du`a's should be answered." (Related by Muslim in his Sahih [authentic] Book of Hadith) The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said: “A Servant is closest to their Lord when they are prostrating. So increase supplications (in prostration).” (Related by Muslim in his Sahih Book of Hadith) Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "When the Prophet (peace be upon him) lifted his head from Ruku`, he used to stand up (so long) that people would think he has forgotten (to perform Sujud). When he sat between the two Sujuds, he would stay in that position until people would think he had forgotten (to perform the second Sujud)." (Part No. 5; Page No. 382) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
