Baihaqi and Haakim, who declared it saheeh
and it is as he said. It also has a strengthening
hadeeth reported by ten of his Companions:
transmitted by Ibn `Asaakir (17/202/2).
These two ahaadeeth show that the sunnah
is to fix one's sight on the place of
prostration on the ground, so the action
of some worshippers of closing their
eyes during Prayer is misdirected piety,
for the best guidance is the guidance
of Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam).

or tearing of the pictures but only removed
them because - and Allaah knows best

souls. The evidence for this is that
he (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) tore
other pictures as proved by many narrations
in Bukhaari and Muslim, and whoever wishes
to explore this further should consult
(10/321) and Ghaayah
al-Maraam fi Takhreej Ahaadeeth al-Halaal
Bukhaari and Muslim.
