Christians advocate closing oneís eyes while praying, citing many reasons for that. One source says: It might be a hint our ancestors left that you cannot perceive god using the human senses. Absolute focus. Eliminate distractions. Itís easier to have a mentally ready brain (to pray) when your eyes are closed.

I donít think Muslims close their eyes while praying, or do they?

But questions: Is it compulsory to close our eyes while praying

If we donít close our eyes while praying, does it mean the prayers canít be answered?
