Question

if we smile during prayer do we
have to cotinue or start the prayer
again

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
The Muslim should be solemn and
submissive during his prayer and he
should keep away from everything
that may prevent him from being
solemn and submissive, because
focus is the heart of prayer. Allaah
praised the believers when He said
(interpretation of the meaning):
“Successful indeed are the believers.
Those who offer their Salaah
(prayers) with all solemnity and full
submissiveness”
[al-Mu’minoon 23:1-2]
Undoubtedly one of the things that
keep a person from being solemn
and submissive is smiling during
prayer.
With regard to the ruling on smiling
during prayer, it does not invalidate
the prayer. See al-Mawsoo’ah al-
Fiqhiyyah, part 27, p. 124.
Ibn Qudaamah said: Ibn al-Mundhir
said: They were unanimously agreed
that laughing invalidates prayer,
and most of the scholars said that
smiling does not invalidate prayer.
Al-Mughni, part 1, p. 394
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said:
as for smiling, it does not invalidate
prayer, but if one giggles in prayer
then that invalidates it. Al-Fataawa
al-Kubra, part 2, p. 227
Al-Nawawi said: our view is that
smiling in prayer does not affect it.
Al-Majmoo’, part 4, p. 22
Al-Bahooti said: It does not
invalidate the prayer if one smiles
whilst praying. This is the view of
the majority narrated by Ibn al-
Mundhir. Kashshaaf al-Qinaa’, part
1, p. 402
Since it does not invalidate the
prayer, then you should complete
the prayer and not stop praying. But
you should avoid things that may
make you do that. See the book 33
Means of Developing Khushoo’ in
prayer, on this web site. And Allaah
knows best.
