Swearing in one’s mind in Salaah

Q: If your swear in your mind in salaah, does it break the salaah?


A: One is required to perform Salaah with complete concentration and devotion. Intentionally thinking of worldly engagements during Salaah is against the spirit of Salaah. Though one’s Salaah will not be invalidated through such thoughts, however the essence and reward of the Salaah will be lost.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
