Imam al-Bukhari relates the following narration under the subtitle “Raising ones eyes towards heaven in the prayer“:

It is related that Anas ibn Malik said, “The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘Why on earth do some people raise their eyes towards heaven during their prayer?‘ His words on this subject grew stronger until he finally said, ‘They should stop doing it or their eyesight will be taken away.‘ “

(Sahih al-Bukhari)
