Concentration in prayer

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

sometimes when praying salah alone, my mind drifts to worldly matters for a few seconds even though I am reciting salah. e.g. half way thru fatiha. then when I reach the surah, I fear I may have not ended fatiha correctly. or during second sajdah, I wonder if the first one had the tasbihs read correct what do you do in such situations? ignore the drifts and carry on? or start again?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah Most Merciful Most Compassionate

Don’t pay any attention to these thoughts–they occur to all of us.
