Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “‘If a man wanted to get a tissue whilst he was standing and praying, and in order to do so he bent his back like someone who is bowing and then stood up again, what is the ruling [concerning that]?’
He replied, ‘His standing [in prayer] is not valid [after that action], because he has left one of the pillars [rukn] of the prayer, i.e., the standing, so he must repeat his prayer.’”
At-Ta’leeq ’alaa Sahih Muslim, vol. 4, p. 661.
