The Details of the Question
Does caressing or pulling the pants while bowing down for prostration in prayer invalidate the prayer?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Though pulling the pants by using two hands does not invalidate the prayer, it is makruh (abominable). That is, it is something that diminishes the thawab (reward) of the prayer and a deed which is not pleasant. There is information in Fatawa al-Hindiyya about this issue
