Sunan Abi Dawood 928
Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet ﷺ as saying:

There is no loss in prayer nor in salutation. Ahmad(b. Hanbal) said: This means, I think, that you do not salute nor you are saluted by others. The loss of a man in his prayer is that a man remains doubtful about it when he finishes it.
حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ حَنْبَلٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مَهْدِيٍّ، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ أَبِي مَالِكٍ الأَشْجَعِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي حَازِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏
"‏ لاَ غِرَارَ فِي صَلاَةٍ وَلاَ تَسْلِيمٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَحْمَدُ يَعْنِي فِيمَا أُرَى أَنْ لاَ تُسَلِّمَ وَلاَ يُسَلَّمَ عَلَيْكَ وَيُغَرِّرُ الرَّجُلُ بِصَلاَتِهِ فَيَنْصَرِفُ وَهُوَ فِيهَا شَاكٌّ ‏.‏
