Who are neglectful of their prayers,

True worship does not consist in the mere form
of prayer, without the heart and mind being earnestly
applied to seek the realisation of the presence of Allah,
and to understand and do His Holy Will.

Narrated `Aisha:

I asked the Prophet (ﷺ) about one’s looking here and there during the prayer. He replied, “It is what Satan steals from the prayer of any one of you.”
