Facing the wrong direction and Performing Salaah

Q: About 2 months ago when I prayed Dhuhr in school, one girl changed the direction of the prayer and I prayed with her even though iI had severe doubts about if it was the right direction. I then found out that it wasn’t the right direction but I didn’t repeat the prayer. Should I redo the prayer? And is it as if I didn’t pray? I had forgotten about this incident, it recently came to my mind, what should I do?


A: If it was read in the wrong direction totally you should repeat the salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
