Question

 

If someone uses their cell phone for haram, for example, to watch pornography, or speaks to non-mahram women, and has the phone in his pocket whilst performing Salah. Is the Salaah valid?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

The actions mentioned above are considered haram but the Salah itself will be valid. In answer to your question by leaving the phone in your pocket whilst praying will not invalidate the Salah.
