عن عائِشَة -رضي الله عنها- مرفوعاً: «لا صلاة بِحَضرَة طَعَام، وَلا وهو يُدَافِعُه الأَخبَثَان».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

‘Ā'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Prayer should not be offered when food is ready, nor when one is in dire need of answering the call of nature."

Explanation

This Hadīth affirms that Shariah urges Muslims to be attentive and focused while standing before their Lord in prayer, and this cannot take place except by cutting off the distractions that hinder tranquility and attentiveness of the heart in prayer. Therefore, Allah forbids offering prayer in the presence of food that one longs for and his heart will be attached to while praying. Likewise, Allah forbids offering prayer when one is in dire need of answering the call of nature (i.e. urine and excrement), because his mind will be busy resisting to relieve himself.
