Is prayer nullified by having thoughts while performing it?

Is prayer nullified by having thoughts while performing it?

Answer:
Prayer isn`t nullified by having thoughts while performing it, provided that the praying person offers all of its pillars and meets all of its conditions. However, the reward decreases significantly in the absence of reverence since a praying person is rewarded according to the attentiveness of his/her heart during prayer.
