باب كراهة الالتفات في الصلاة لغير عذر
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رضِيَ اللَّه عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : سأَلْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم عَنِ الالْتِفَاتِ في الصَّلاةِ فَقَالَ : « هُوَ اخْتِلاسٌ يَخْتَلِسُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنْ صَلاةِ الْعَبْدِ » رواهُ البُخَاري .
1755/341 - رياض الصالحين
Undesirability of Glancing in one Direction of the other during Prayer
`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: I asked the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) about random looks in Salat (prayer), and he replied, "It is something which Satan snatches from the slaves Salat."[Al-Bukhari].

"Pouncing" or "snatching" means to take away something swiftly from someone while he is not alert. When a person looks here and there in the course of Salat and does not concentrate on it, Satan avails this opportunity and spoils his Salat.
