    Title: Closing one's eyes in salah

    Question: What is the ruling regarding closing one’s eyes in salah due to pain?

    Answer ID: 66422

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1063/1116/L=10/1437)

    It is makrooh to offer salah closing one’s eyes without a valid reason. However, there is no harm if someone closes his eyes due to pain.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
